a) I can't find anything about the Electoral college being described in the Constitution? (My teacher said there are two parts)
Is there a section in the Constitution where it describes the checks and balance system? I need to find out where each branch holds a power over another branch.
a)Power the execcutive branch has over the legislative branch? -> veto Congress
b))Power the execcutive branch has over the judicial branch? -> appoints judges
c))Power the legislative branch has over the executive branch? -> override Presidential veto
d) Power the legislative branch has over the judical branch? -> approves federal judges
e) Power the judical branch has over the executive branch? -> Judical Review
f) Power the judical branch has over the legislative branch -> Judical Review
I searched Google with these three words: Constitution Electoral College. The first site is this one.
It has links to the two parts about the Electoral College -- Article 2, Section 1, clauses 2 and 3, and the 12th Amendment.
I suggest you Google your other questions in the same way. If you still have a question you can't find, please post another message here.
