How long has the Electoral College remained at its present number of members?

There have been 538 members of the Electoral College since 1964, when, in keeping with the 23rd Amendment, the District of Columbia acquired three electors.

In addition, each state chooses as many electors as it has senators and representatives in Congress.

At present, 270 electoral votes are needed to win, a majority of the 538 electors.
