Electoral College Tie Finder
Read more about what happens if no candidate reaches 270 electoral votes.
While unlikely, a 269-269 tie is not out of the question in a competitive 2020 presidential election. Use the calculator below to find all tie scenarios for a group of undecided locations (states and/or districts*).
The tie finder is based on the map at right. In that map, locations decided by <5% in 2016 are displayed as toss-up, while those decided by 5-10% are shown as light red/blue. This corresponds to the icons below. The numbers in parentheses represent that location’s electoral votes.
Select a state or district to change its setting. As you do that, the available electoral tie combinations will update, as will the electoral vote count for each party.
