How many people are required per electoral vote? Well the answer depends on which state you are referring to. As you can see above, 660,000 people in Texas make up one electoral vote. In Vermont however, 208,000 people make up one electoral vote. So in essence, a Texan’s vote is equal to one-third (actually less) that of a Vermont resident’s vote.
