Amendment 12

#amendment #kettner

My Amedment is 12 and its about how the President and Vice President one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. It was proposed so then President and Vice President could inhabitant.To tie in the Electoral College with his Vice Presidential candidate Aaron Burr. So then you can have freedom and not have violence and to have the Electoral College put back to use. Why was it ratified? It was ratified on June 15, 1804 in time for the new process to be in place for the 1804 elections. Things that changed after it passed was that who ever had the most votes in the elections would win and that they can only be elected twice then they can tbe elceted anymore.
