Watch The Presidential Electoral Map Live [Real Time]

President Obama and Mitt Romney

It is Election Day, and the time for picking our President is finally here. Will it be Mitt Romney or President Barack Obama? Let’s look at the Electoral Map to decide (Real Time Electoral Map Below).

A candidate must secure 270 Electoral votes in order the win the Presidency. A candidate can use any combination of States to get them to that total. Electoral votes are divided among the States in proportion to their population. Being ahead in Electoral votes leading up to the election is basically meaningless as the swing States will decide who will be President and who will go home.

President Obama is leading with 226 Electoral votes. These votes are from States that are going to be voting for the President. States that are solidly in the Democratic column are California (55 Electoral Votes), Connecticut (7 Electoral Votes), Delaware (3 Electoral Votes), Hawaii (4 Electoral Votes), Illinois (20 Electoral Votes), Massachusetts (11 Electoral Votes), Maryland (10 Electoral Votes), Maine (4 Electoral Votes), Michigan (16 Electoral Votes), Minnesota (10 Electoral Votes), New Hampshire (4 Electoral Votes), New Jersey (14 Electoral Votes), New York (29 Electoral Votes), Oregon (7 Electoral Votes), Rhode Island (4 Electoral Votes), Vermont (3 Electoral Votes), Washington (12 Electoral Votes), Wisconsin (10 Electoral Votes), and Washington, D.C. (3 Electoral Votes).

Mitt Romney has 180 Electoral Votes lined up for him including, Alaska (3 Electoral Votes), Alabama (9 Electoral Votes), Arkansas (6 Electoral Votes), Arizona (11 Electoral Votes), Georgia (16 Electoral Votes), Idaho (4 Electoral Votes), Kansas (6 Electoral Votes), Kentucky (8 Electoral Votes), Louisiana (8 Electoral Votes), Missouri (10 Electoral Votes), Mississippi (6 Electoral Votes), Montana (3 Electoral Votes), North Dakota (3 Electoral Votes), Nebraska (5 Electoral Votes), Oklahoma (7 Electoral Votes), South Carolina (9 Electoral Votes), South Dakota (3 Electoral Votes), Tennessee (11 Electoral Votes), Texas (38 Electoral Votes), Utah (6 Electoral Votes), West Virginia (5 Electoral Votes), and Wyoming (3 Electoral Votes).
