On February 6, 2011 one of these John Paul II cardinals, the Filipino, Ricardo Jamin Vidal turned 80 and became a non-elector. When this happened, the 138 John Paul II cardinals became evenly split between electors and non-electors, 69 each. This will change again in 6 days when another John Paul creation becomes a non-elector. Then it would be 68 electors, 70 non-electors.
Currently, until February 12, there are 119 electors — 69 John Paul II creations and the rest, 50, created by Benedict XVI (#266).
