What happens if the President-elect dies between being elected and the inauguration?


Twentieth Amendment (Amendment XX), Section 3. If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. So does that mean if Clinton croaks (if she wins on Nov 8, 2016) then does that mean Tim Kaine becomes President in 2017? Who is Time Kaine? What is his voting record? Does a vote for Corpus Clinton a vote for Tim Kaine? Is that a bad thing? I want to know more about this guy. Please send link for info on voting background Thank you. Asking because HRC fainted @ 911 memorial.

    Another one of many good reasons why the Electoral College is not a good idea, and we need another amendment to get rid of it.

    In the case above, it totally disenfranchises the voter, and makes it a dictatorship.
