When the 2020 campaign gets underway, we’ll create a consensus map based on the latest polling and forecasts.
About the Electoral Vote Map
Electoral Vote Map is an interactive map to help you follow the 2020 presidential election. The site also features a series of explainers about how presidents are actually elected in the United States.
The election of the president is about winning the popular vote in enough states to achieve a majority of electoral votes, or 270 of the 538 available. Winning the popular vote is irrelevant, as we saw in both the 2000 and 2016 elections.
