Best Answer

Every one of the 51 governments that appoint the electors of the U. S. President and Vice President currently uses public election to determine which candidates will get its votes. The District of Columbia, Arkansas and every other state except Maine and Nebraska each casts ALL of its votes for the Presidential candidate and the Vice Presidential candidate who received the most votes in its public election.

The number of electors each of the states may appoint is equal to the total number of Senate and House seats that state has in the U. S. Congress. Every state has two U. S. Senators, and Arkansas has had four congressmen in the U. S. House of Representatives since 1963. Therefore, Arkansas casts six votes in each Presidential election and each Vice Presidential election through and including the elections of 2020. The number of votes Arkansas will cast in 2024 and 2028 depends on the result of the 2021 congressional reapportionment, and that depends on the results of the 2020 U. S. Census.
