How Does The Electoral College Work?

The US presidential election takes place on Tuesday. But it’s possible the candidate with the most votes from the public won’t be the winner.

This is because the president is not chosen directly by the voters, but by what’s known as the electoral college.

The number of electors from each state is roughly in line with the size of its population. Each state gets as many electors as it has lawmakers in the US Congress (representatives in the House and senators).

California has the most electors – 55 – while a handful of sparsely populated states like Wyoming, Alaska and North Dakota (and Washington DC) have the minimum of three.

There are 538 electors in total.

Each elector represents one electoral vote, and a candidate needs to gain a majority of the votes – 270 or more – to win the presidency.
