Are you going to vote in the next Presidential Election? Do you want to find out how much your vote counts if you live in Illinois? Here we will determine how much your vote counts in Illinois based on Electoral College information, how many people vote in Illinois, and how many electoral votes Illinois has.

Our calculations are based on the United States Census Bureau data from the previous election and information about the U.S. Electoral College from the National Archives and Records Administration:

Total Electoral College: 538

Electoral College to win: 270

Illinois Electoral votes: 20

People who vote in Illinois: 5,719,000

Because Illinois has 20 out of 538 electoral votes, we can calculate (20/538) x 100 = 3.72. This means that Illinois' total influence over the Presidential Election is 3.72%

If we divide 3.72% by the Illinois voting population of 5,719,000 we get how much one person's Illinois vote influences the Presidential Election. The answer is 0.000000650021353201453%

Since a Presidential Candiate only needs 270 Electoral votes to win, we could do our math like this: (20/270) x 100 = 7.41 which means that Illinois can contribute 7.41% of the Electoral College to get to 270.

Furthermore, 7.41 divided by 5,719,000 is 0.00000129522773341623. This means that your vote in Illinois will be 0.00000129522773341623% of what is needed for the Presidential Candidate to win the White House.
