Each state did and does have exactly two votes - that is, two senators - in the the part of Congress called the Senate.

The representatives in Congress have a vote for every "so many" people in the state, each vote being used by one representative.

Every state has two senators in the U.S. Senate and at least one representative to the U.S. House of Representatives. The total number of Representatives is fixed at 435. Every 10 years the U.S. Census Bureau takes a census of the population in each state. The 435 representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives is then reapportioned among the 50 states based on the population in each state.
