When referring to the Electoral College and Presidential elections, a candidate can win by taking: California (55 electoral votes) Texas (28 electoral votes) Florida (29 electoral votes) New York (29 electoral votes) Illinois (20 electoral votes) Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes) Ohio (18 electoral votes) Georgia (16 electoral votes) Michigan (16 electoral votes) New Jersey (15 electoral votes) Virginia (14 electoral votes) - a total of 11 states for 270 electoral votes which means a candidate can lose the other 39 states and District of Columbia and still win the election.

The number of electoral votes for Ohio was reduced based on population changes revealed by the 2010 census. The population of Ohio did not increase as much as the population of the states that gained or keep the same number of electoral votes .


In each state (except Maine and Nebraska), the winner of that state takes all of that state's electoral votes. For example, Ohio has 18 Electoral Votes. If the Republican candidate would win a mere 51% of all the people's votes, then all 18 of the state's electoral votes would be given to the Republican candidate. This can result in a President being elected who did not actually receive as many votes as another candidate. It is theoretically possible for the a candidate to win by just one vote in the 11 largest states and get no votes at all in the other 39 states and DC and still win the election.


The number of electoral votes for each state is equal to the sum of its number of Senators and its number of Representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives. Based on the 2010 Census, there are 16 members of the U.S. House of Representatives from Ohio. Therefore, Ohio has 18 electoral votes.

Democrat won in Ohio for the electoral votes.


A "winner take all" state is a state in which the candidate with the most votes carries all of the electoral college votes from that state. Most states in the US are "winner take all", including California, Ohio and New York. There are a few states that divide their populations into districts or regions. The candidate with the most votes in each district or region gets the electoral college votes assigned to that district or region. In this model, it is possible for several candidates to each win one or more electoral college votes. Nebraska has this system - there are currently three regions with one electoral college vote each; however, in practice generally all three electoral college votes are won by the same candidate.
