Ch Presidential Selection: The Framers’ Plan In formal terms, the President is chosen according to the provisions of the Constitution. In practice, however, the President is elected through a process which is a combination of constitutional provisions, State and federal laws, and a number of practices born of the nation’s political parties. Original Provisions: Popular vote or Congress Most legislatures came to believe as Alexander Hamilton that if Congress selected it would give them too much power. After debate: Framers put forward a plan by Hamilton: President and VP would be chosen by a special body of presidential electors. Electors would cast two votes. Candidate with the most votes would become President, second most votes would become VP.
Hamilton’s Plan Most votes President Second most votes VP Look at the chart on page 366. Electors were intended to be the most enlightened and respectable citizens from each state. Rise of Political Parties: Electoral college, is a group of people chosen from each State and the District of Columbia to formally select the President and VP This worked only twice. During Washington’s presidency With the rise of political parties in 1796, flaws began to appear. Federalists – John Adams v. Democratic Republicans – Thomas Jefferson Jefferson lost by three votes and became Adams VP
Election of 1800 Again Federalists v. Democratic Republicans Each party nominated Presidential and VP candidates. They also nominated presidential electors, who would then pick their party’s presidential and vp nominees. 73 Democratic Republicans, who won posts as electors cast their vote for Democratic Republicans-Jefferson and Burr This resulted in a tie for the presidency: Jefferson and Aaron Burr. The Constitution gave each elector two votes, each to be cast for a different person, but each to be cast for someone as president. Finally Jefferson was chosen by the House, and this marked changes to the process of electing the President.
Election of 1800 three new elements 1.Party nominations for the presidency and VP 2.The nomination of candidates for presidential electors pledged to vote for their party’s presidential ticket 3.The automatic casting of the electoral votes in line with those pledges
12 th Amendment Election of 1800 also resulted in the 12 th amendment. Added in 1804 To make sure there would never be another such fiasco. Separated the presidential and VP elections “The Electors…shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as VP.” So no repeat of a tie like in 1800, and president and VP will almost certainly guaranteed to be of the same party. Look at the timeline of the 12th amendment on page 366. Answer the question below. Look at the map on page 367, answer the question below.
