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 New Mexico? Here we will determine how much your vote counts in New Mexico based on Electoral College information, how many people vote in New Mexico, and how many electoral votes New Mexico 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

New Mexico Electoral votes: 5

People who vote in New Mexico: 765,000

Because New Mexico has 5 out of 538 electoral votes, we can calculate (5/538) x 100 = 0.93. This means that New Mexico's total influence over the Presidential Election is 0.93%

If we divide 0.93% by the New Mexico voting population of 765,000 we get how much one person's New Mexico vote influences the Presidential Election. The answer is 0.00000121486016959448%

Since a Presidential Candiate only needs 270 Electoral votes to win, we could do our math like this: (5/270) x 100 = 1.85 which means that New Mexico can contribute 1.85% of the Electoral College to get to 270.

Furthermore, 1.85 divided by 765,000 is 0.00000242072137496974. This means that your vote in New Mexico will be 0.00000242072137496974% of what is needed for the Presidential Candidate to win the White House.
