Storyboard Text

  • Let's divide the legislative branch into two houses- a House of Representitives, where the number depends on the population, and a Senate, with two members from each state. Larger states would have an advantage because the number of representatives would depend on population.
  • But should the votes be by citizens, by Congress, or by state legislature?
  • Let's make the "Electoral College System." Voters from each state vote for people that selected voters must pledge to vote for.
  • 150 years later
  • It's Election Day! Everyone registered can come right here to vote!
  • Meanwhile, with the 3/5th compromise...
  • Sir, how will we count slaves for taxes and representation?
  • Let's count enslaved people as 3/5ths of a person when it comes to taxes.
  • We've decided that for taxes, slaves should be counted as 3/5ths of a person!
  • But we don't want slaved people counted at all
  • We tried the 3/5th clause and it's what it is now!
