Best Answer

It varies by state. The minimum for a state is three but there is no maximum limit; California has the most with 55 (as of 2012).

The number is determined by the number of people the state sends to Congress. So the number will be based on:

1. The number of Senators a state has- everystate has exactly two.

2. The number of Representatives a state has. This is based on the number of people who live in the state, but every state is guaranteed to have at least one.

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.
