The change was due to the ratification of the 12th amendment which was prompted by the election of 1800 in which Jefferson and his running mate Burr tied in electoral votes due to the way the election was conducted. Before the amendment, every elector had two votes for President and the second place finisher was elected vice-president. After the amendment, there were two separate electoral college ballots in which each elector has only one vote. The first election is for President and the second for vice-president.

Al Gore ran with Joe Lelberman inj 2000. They won the popular vote but lost the election.

The election of 1800 was the last election in which there was no separate election for Vice President. In the first four elections both presidential and vice presidential hopefuls officially were all running for President. Each elector would vote for two candidates, and the candidate with the second-highest number of votes became the Vice President. Unofficially, Thomas Jefferson's running mate was Aaron Burr, and John Adams' running mate was Charles C. Pinckney, brother of Thomas Pinckney, Adams' running mate four years earlier.
