17. Sorry, you have it exactly the wrong way around.

 

The Wyoming vote counts much more than yours!

Wyoming: 400,000/3 = 133,333 pop. per electoral vote.

Florida: 18,801,310/29 = 648,321 pop. per electoral vote.

Wyoming vote is worth 5 (4.8) times a Florida vote!

On senators, even more obvious:

Wyoming: 200,000 people per senator.

Florida: 9.4 million people per senator.

Wyoming vote is worth FORTY-SEVEN times a Florida vote.

If we were preparing a legal suit we'd have to find precise Census counts of eligible electorate and registered voters and show the figures for those, but obviously they'd be similar outcomes.
