67 people need to vote
even though 2/3 is 66.66, it need to be rounded up to 67

To answer this question, you need to round to the nearest whole number, because you cannot have two thirds of a senator vote. Since two thirds rounds up to 1, your answer would be 66 + 1, which is 67. Therefore, the minimum number of votes to override a veto is 67 votes.
