No, there are not as many electors in each state as there are senators. The number of electors in each state is equal to the total number of representatives and senators that the state has in Congress. Each state has two senators, but the number of representatives varies based on the state's population.

535 - each State gets the same number of Electors as the total of its Senators and Representatives.

Three. Every state has exactly 2 senators in the U.S. Senate, while the number of representatives in the U.S. House vary from state to state. A state by law, though must have at least one congressman. Since number of electors is based on total number of senators and congressmen of a state, 2 senators + 1 congressman= 3 total electors minimum.

The number of presidential elections for each state is determined by the number of electors assigned to that state. Each state is allocated a number of electors equal to its number of Senators (always 2) plus its number of Representatives in the House of Representatives (based on its population). The total number of electors across all states is 538, so each state's electors contribute to that total and collectively determine the outcome of the presidential election.

Every state has a minimum of three electoral votes, because each state is allowed to appoint a number of electors equal to the total number of Senators and Representatives representing the state in the U.S. Congress, and every state has two Senators and at least one Representative. Also, although the District of Columbia does not have Congressional representation (since it is not a state), the U.S. Constitution has been amended to allow them to appoint a number of electors equal to the total number of Senators and Representatives they would have in Congress if they were a state or the same number of electors as the state with the lowest population, whichever is less. There is currently one state with a smaller population than that of D.C.: Wyoming.

The number of electors for a state is determined by the state's representation in Washington. That is, each state has one elector for each senator and one elector for each representative. For example, Wyoming has two senators and one member of the House of Representatives. Therefore, Wyoming has three electors.

closeThe number of presidential electors each state appoints is equal to the total of that state's U.S. Representatives and U.S. Senators. Since every state has two U.S. Senators, the number of electors is the number of the state's U.S. Representatives plus two.
