How did the twelfth amendment change the way the president is chosen when no candidate earns the majority electoral votes?

Prior to adoption of the Twelfth Amendment of the United States Constitution, electors cast votes for two persons. Electors could not distinguish between their presidential and vice-presidential choices. The recipient of the most electoral votes would become president and the runner-up vice-president. The 12th Amendment of the Constitution states that electors are to vote separately for the president and vice president, on separate electoral ballots. Before this amendment the electors cast two votes in one election and the second-place finisher was made vice-president. If no candidate receives a majority of electoral votes, the Twelfth Amendment of the United States Constitution provides that the U.S. House of Representatives will select the president, with each of the fifty state delegations casting one vote, and the U.S. Senate will select the vice-president.

How did the 12 amendment change the presidential election?

Before the 12th Amendment was ratified (1788-1800), each elector casts two votes for president. Whoever got the most votes became president as long as he received votes from more than half of the appointed electors. Whoever had the second-most votes became vice president; he did not require votes from a majority of the electors. Since the 12th Amendment was ratified in 1804, each elector casts one vote for president and one vote for vice president. Unless more than half of the electors votes for the same person for president, the House of Representatives elects the president from among the top three vote receivers. Unless more than half of the electors votes for the same person for vice president, the Senate elects the vice president from between the top two vote receivers.
