Cardinal Numbers, updated

With the death today of Georg Maximilian Cardinal Sterzinsky, Archbishop Emeritus of Berlin, Germany, the number of Cardinal Electors drops to 114 out of 197 living.

By the end of this year, 4 Cardinals will turn 80 and lose their right to vote, leaving 110 electors.

In 2012, thirteen more Cardinals turn 80. That will leave 97 electors at the end of the year, if there is not a consistory to add more.

In 2013, an additional 10 Cardinals turn 80.
