This means that two-thirds of the members of both the House of Representatives and the Senate must vote in favor of overriding the veto in order for it to be successful. This high threshold ensures that there is a significant level of support and consensus among lawmakers before overriding a veto, preventing any one branch of government from having too much power.

This allows the president enough time to implement their policies and fulfill their campaign promises, while also allowing for regular elections to ensure accountability and the possibility of change in leadership.

The number of electors each state has is determined by adding the total number of Senators and Representatives that state has in Congress.

Therefore, the Electoral College members are determined by adding both Senate and House members.
