Pearls Notes:

Also i added it right after Bill of Rights on my timeline.

I just learned something (or have a question) about what they did for electoral votes that is not fair. They take the majority from each state but that is not fair because it does not count minority votes. Am I missing something here?

No wonder they have so many candidates and just pick one from each state whereas if you found more for an individual on all states combined he would win but not be able to take office.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something. it's such a long Amendment. That's why I typed it in when I typed Article 2 so we could learn where they changed it. It's really a big deal.
