Electoral College changes from 2000

With the completion of the 2000 census, Congressional re-apportionment took place, moving some representative districts from the slowest growing states to the fastest growing. As a result, some states will send a different number of electors to the U.S. Electoral College, since the number of electors allotted to a state is equal to the sum of the number of Senators and Representatives from that state. Since the results were so close in 2000, this could potentially impact the outcome of the 2004 election.

The following table shows the change in electors from the 2000 election. Red (+7) states represent those that Bush won in 2000 and blue (-7) states Gore won. All the states listed use a winner-takes-all allocation of electors.

  • Arizona (+2)
  • California (+1)
  • Colorado (+1)
  • Connecticut (-1)
  • Florida (+2)
  • Georgia (+2)
  • Illinois (-1)
  • Indiana (-1)
  • Michigan (-1)
  • Mississippi (-1)
  • Nevada (+1)
  • New York (-2)
  • North Carolina (+1)
  • Ohio (-1)
  • Oklahoma (-1)
  • Pennsylvania (-2)
  • Texas (+2)
  • Wisconsin (-1)
