                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
  Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to 
provide a new procedure for appointment of Electors for the election of 
                   the President and Vice President.

    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House 
concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an 
amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be 
valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when 
ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States 
within seven years after the date of final passage of this joint 
resolution:

                              ``Article--

    ``Section 1. In an election for President or Vice President, each 
State shall appoint a number of Electors to vote for each candidate for 
President or Vice President that bears the same ratio to the total 
number of Electors of that State as the number of votes received by 
that candidate bears to the total number of votes cast in that State. 
Each State shall make computations for purposes of carrying out this 
section in accordance with such laws as it may adopt, including laws 
providing for the allocation of Electors among more than two candidates 
receiving 5 percent or more of the total number of votes cast in the 
State under such criteria as the State may by law establish, except 
that fractional numbers less than one one-thousandth shall be 
disregarded. The person having the greatest number of Electors 
appointed after Electors are appointed from all States shall be the 
President.
    ``Section 2. For purposes of this article, the District 
constituting the seat of Government of the United States shall be 
treated as if it were a State, except that the District may not appoint 
a number of Electors greater than the number of Electors appointed by 
the least populous State.
    ``Section 3. The Congress shall have the power to enforce this 
article by appropriate legislation.
    ``Section 4. This article shall apply with regard to any election 
for President or Vice President that is held more than one year after 
the date of the ratification of this article.''.
                                 <all>
