It requires electors to vote for president and vice president.
The Twelfth Amendment attempted to solve this problem by differentiating the candidates for the two offices and then calling on the electors to indicate their favorite for eac…h. Thus, the party system was, in effect, constitutionally recognized by the Amendment, whereas the original scheme of 1787 had been predicated on the Framers' loathing of the very idea of party politics. The Twelfth Amendment provides, among other things, that "Electors shall . . . vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves." This clearly doesn't prohibit all-Virginia or all-New York tickets; it simply generates a significant disincentive for such tickets inasmuch as the Virginia or New York electors are barred from voting for both of their party's candidates. _________________________________________________________________ Because of the election of 1800.
The Twelfth Amendment (Amendment XII) to the United StatesConstitution provides the procedure for electing the President andVice President.
The Twelfth Amendment provides that presidential electors vote separately for president and for vice president.
the Twelfth amendment was ratified on June 15, 1804. Source: Wikipedia
The twelfth amendment to the US Constitution was intended to prevent having a President and Vice President voted in who were at odds with each other. Formerly, the Vice Pr…esident was the presidential candidate with the second most votes. The amendment made it so that the Vice President was voted for separately and required a majority of the votes.
Changed the process whereby the Electoral College, and if necessary the House of Representatives, chooses the President. It did not change the composition of the Elector…al College
It established separate ballots for the President and Vice President in the electoral college.
This amendment gave the electors in the electoral one vote to vote once for the pair that are running for president and vice-president. Therefore, the president and vice-p…resident are from the same party and the winning president knows who his vice-president will be. Before this amendment, each elector had two votes for president and and the man who finished second was made vice-president. This plan caused two problems. In 1796. John Adams won the presidency and his bitter opponent, Thomas Jefferson, was made vice-president. In 1800, Thomas Jefferson ran for President, with Aaron Burr his running mate. However all of the supporters of Jefferson also voted for Burr, so there was a tie. Burr saw his chance to be President and so did not resign, throwing the election into the House to be decided. There was a long debate, deals were proposed and made, and eventually Jefferson was declared the winner.
changed the way votes were cast for the President and vice president
To determine how vice president was elected
The president and vice president ran together in elections.
The 12th amendment is that Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates will appear on 2 separate ballets. For example in the last presidential election Obama ran for Preside…nt with Biden as Vice President and then on a separate ballet McCain ran with Palin as Vice President, rather with all 4 running for president. Before this the winner of the election was the President and the runner-up became the Vice President, but that became a problem because of partisan differences and thus we have the 12th amendment.

The Twelfth Amendment (Amendment XII) to the United States Constitution provides the procedure for electing the President and Vice President. It replaced Article II, Section 1…, Clause 3, which provided the original procedure by which the Electoral College functioned. Problems with the original procedure arose in the elections of 1796 and 1800. The Twelfth Amendment was proposed by the Congress on December 9, 1803, and was ratified by the required number of state legislatures on June 15, 1804. -wiki
