    Age 1

    With not having a very clear statement in the Constitution about Presidents and Vice Presidents, the Twelfth Amendment was Born. 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.

    English (Devon, Somerset, and Cornwall): from Middle English babe ‘infant, young child’, applied as a nickname.
