Amendment 12

President and vice president


- The president and vice president have to run together and be voted on together

- This amendment was passed because in years before this, the president who had the second most votes would become the vice president. Sometimes these two where part of a different political party. this caused major problems.

- Passed on December 9th 1803

- This is still important so that we will not have two people closely working together not in agreement
