17th Amendment

Popular election of senators

People elect

  • Amendment was passed in 1913.
  • This amendment was made because before, senators and some people of government were elected by other current senators and it was super unbalanced and not well kept.
  • Its still important because people elect and that kind of helps it shape to how it needs to be.
  • Not really any restrictions, other former senators can't vote for new senators.
