Since intensive property "is a physical property of a system that does not depend on the system size or the amount of material in the system," voltage is an intensive property because it does not change due to the size of the electrode or the amount of electrons transferred. What it depends on for any changes is the potential difference among metals.
Just think about voltage as a set measurement for certain reactions. For instance, 2 Ag+ (aq) + 2 e- ------> 2 Ag (s) will have a certain voltage value. It does not matter how much of the reactants or products there are. It is a set measurement independent of the amount.
