Q97. "How many members of Congress are there?"
A. There are 100 Senators and 435 Representatives, so there are 535 members of Congress. The House has several non-voting members that are not included in the count (see the Members of Congress Page for a list of the current Congress). The number of representatives kept rising until a law was passed in 1911, locking the number of representatives to the number current at that time. That number was 435.
