How a bill becomes a law

How a Bill becomes a Law

Senate

House of Representatives

  • goes to President

  • Bill is introduced

  • House votes

  • 3. If approved, Bill goes

  • to Senate; or it dies

A bill can originate

in House or Senate

President

1. President signs = law

2. Doesn’t sign in 10

days while Congress

is in session, it

becomes a Law

Congress

How a bill becomes a law1

How a Bill becomes a Law

If Congress adjourns,

and President doesn’t

sign within 10 days

= Pocket Veto

(Bill dies)

House

President

  • House votes:

  • If 2/3 yes = override

  • (back to Senate)

  • 2. If no, Bill dies

If President

“Vetos,”

Bill goes back

Electing a president

Electing a President

If no one gets 270, Electoral votes,

the House of Rep chooses the Pres.

Getting the most popular votes or Winning the

most states doesn’t guarantee victory

There are 538“electors” in

The U.S.; a candidate needs a majority;

(at least 270/538) to become President

The number of “electors” equals the state’s total number

of senators + representatives. Winning the states with

the largest populations counts a lot.

The candidate with the most votes in each state

wins that state’s total electoral votes. (Winner take all)

Election day: Citizens 18 and older vote for President
