Before the Electoral College could cast two votes for those that they saw fit for President. This was changed to just one electoral vote for President and one electoral vote for Vice President. With the amount of people even allowed to vote, there was no way for there to be a tie during the elections.

Name Meaning

English:1. nickname for a person with a large or unusually shaped head, from Middle English poll ‘head’ (Middle Low German polle ‘(top of the) head’) + the pejorative suffix -ard. The term pollard in the sense denoting an animal that has had its horns lopped is not recorded before the 16th century, and as applied to a tree the word is not recorded until the 17th century; so both these senses are almost certainly too late to have contributed to the surname. 2. pejorative derivative of the personal name Paul . The surname has been established in Ireland since the 14th century.
