We want to have a rule that lets the bigger population have more representatives.
I propose a plan that lets only 1 vote for each state.
New Jersey Plan
The Great Compromise
The house of representatives, representatives would be chosen by popular vote and would be based on population. Senate, would be chosen by the state legislature and each state, no matter what size, will have 2 senators.
Northern States Perspective
The Northern states wanted to make the slaves have no vote and so that slaves do not count in the population.
Southern Sates Perspectives
The Southern states wanted to include slaves in their population because that would give the the southern states more representatives in the house of representatives.
The 3/5 Compromise
The north and the south came to agree that slaves would only count as 60% of a person.
