Pope Paul VI by his motu proprio Ingravescentem aetatem, dated November 21, 1970, substantially modified the electoral power of the cardinals. The document stipulated that cardinals older than eighty years were deprived of their right to elect the pope and to participate in the conclave. When this provision went into effect on January 1, 1971, twenty-five cardinals lost their electoral rights. This regulation was later reaffirmed by his apostolic constitution Romano Pontifici eligendo of October 1, 1975 and by Pope John Paul II's apostolic constitution Universi Dominici Gregis of February 22, 1996.

As of March 14, 2014, there are 119 electors; 38 have been created by Pope John Paul II; 65 by Pope Benedict XVI; and 16 by Pope Francis. In parentheses, following the name, is the year of cardinalitial creation and then, the date of birth.
