The number of voting members in the US House of Representatives is fixed at 435. That was set by Congress in The Reapportionment Act of 1929. In addition to the 435 members representing the states, there are 6 non-voting delegates: one from the District of Columbia, one Resident Commissioner for Puerto Rico and delegates from the Northern Marianas Islands, the US Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa.

The seats are apportioned to the states according to the population of each state, with every state getting at least one representative. Currently, seven states have only one representative. California has the most at 53. Every 10 years the Census Bureau provides the population numbers. Some states gain representatives and some states lose representatives but the total number stays at 435.
