The minimum number of votes required for the Senate to override a presidential veto is two-thirds of the senators present and voting. This means that at least 67 out of the 100 senators must cast their votes in favor of overriding the veto for it to be successful. The Senate can take a vote to override a presidential veto after the President has vetoed a bill passed by both the House of Representatives and the Senate. If the Senate achieves the two-thirds majority vote, the bill becomes law despite the President’s veto. Out of 1,484 regular vetoes since 1789, only 7.1%, or 106, have been overridden.

Correct Answer: 67
