USA Presidential Elections

Presidential Elections

2024 Presidential Primary:
 TBD 

2024 Presidential Election:
November 5, 2024

How the electoral college works...
9 = the number of electoral votes for the state of South Carolina.
538 = the total number of electoral votes in the Electoral College.
270 = number of electoral votes necessary to WIN the Presidential election!

Electoral votes are divvied up based on the Census. Each state gets a number of votes equal to the number of Senators plus Representatives in its U.S. Congressional delegation.
South Carolina = 9 electoral votes (2 US Senators + 7 US House Reps).

South Carolina awards its 9 electoral votes to the Presidential candidate who wins the election in South Carolina.
The first candidate to reach 270 wins the Presidency!

Why 270? If you divide 538 (total electoral votes) in half = 269 = A tie. Therefore, when a candidate hits 270, they have the majority of states electoral votes needed to win.
