What happens if no candidate wins a majority of electoral votes?


If no candidate receives a majority of electoral votes, the House of Representatives elects the President from the three candidates who received the most electoral votes. Each state delegation has one vote. The Senate elects the Vice President from the two vice presidential candidates with the most electoral votes. Each senator casts one vote. The House of Representatives has chosen the president twice, during the elections of 1800 and 1824. The Senate has chosen the vice president only once, during the election of 1836.
