Electoral College changes
The 2010 Census changed the Electoral College vote apportionment for the Presidential elections from 2012 to 2020 in the following states.
States in blue represent states that gained votes. States in orange represent states that lost votes. These changes would give the Democratic Party a net loss of six electoral votes in typically blue states, while the Republican Party will see a net gain of six electoral votes in typically red states. Votes allocated to remaining states remain unchanged from the national total of 115.
If States vote along historic party lines, Blue States still hold 242 Electorates, with Red States holding 181 Electorates.
