(because) they have more people
(because) some states have more people


The Founding Fathers wanted people in all states to be represented fairly. In the House of Representatives, a state's population determines the number of representatives it has. In this way, states with many people have a stronger voice in the House. In the Senate, every state has the same number of senators. This means that states with few people still have a strong voice in the national government. The states with the most representatives is California, with 53 representatives. The states with the fewest representatives are Alaska, Delaware, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, and Wyoming. Each of these states has only one representative in the House.
