Preamble

We the People of the United States, in order to form a more
perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare,
and secure the blessing of liberty to ourselves and our
posterity, do ordain and establish the Constitution of the
United States of America.

Article I.

Sect. 1. All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested
in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a
Senate and a House of Representatives.

Sect. 2. The House of Representatives shall be composed of
members chosen every second year by the people of the several
states, and the electors in each state shall have the
qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous
branch of the state legislature.
No person shall be a representative who shall not have attained
to the age of twenty-five years, and been seven years a citizen
of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an
inhabitant of that state in which he shall be chosen.
Representative and direct taxes shall be apportioned among the
several states which may be included within this Union,
according to their respective numbers, which shall be
determined by adding to the whole number of free persons,
including those bound to service for a term of years, and
excluding Indians not taxed, three-fifths of all other persons.
The actual enumeration shall be made within three years after
the first meeting of the Congress of the United States, and
within every subsequent term of ten years in such manner as
they shall be law direct. The number of representative shall
not exceed one for every thirty thousand, but each state shall
have at least one representative; and until such enumeration
shall be made, the state of New Hampshire shall be entitled to
choose three, Massachusetts eight, Rhode Island and Providence
Plantations one, Connecticut five, New-York six, New-Jersey
four, Pennsylvania eight, Delaware one, Maryland six, Virginia
ten, North-Carolina five, South-Carolina five, and Georgia
three.
When vacancies happen in the representation from any state, the
Executive authority thereof shall issue writs of election to
fill such vacancies.
The House of Representatives shall choose the Speaker and other
officers; and shall have the sole power of impeachment.

Sect. 3. The Senate of the United States shall be composed of
two senators from each state chosen by the legislature thereof,
for six years and each senator shall have one vote.
Immediately after they shall be assembled in consequence of the
first election, they hall be divided as equally as may be into
three classes. The seats of the senators of the first class
shall be vacated at the expiration of the second year, of the
second class at the expiration of the fourth year, and of the
third class at the expiration of the sixth year, so that
one-third may be chosen every second year; and if vacancies
happen by resignation, or otherwise during the recess of the
legislature of any state, the Executive thereof may make
temporary appointments until the next meeting of the
Legislature, which shall then fill such vacancies.
No person shall be a senator who shall not have attained to the
age of thirty years, and been nine years a citizen of the
United States, who shall not, when elected, be an inhabitant of
that state for which he shall be chosen.
The Vice-President of the United States shall be President of
the Senate, but shall have no vote unless they be equally
divided.
The Senate shall choose their other officers, and also a
President pro tempore, in the absence of the Vice-President, or
when he shall exercise the office of President of the United
States.
The Senate shall have the sole power to try all impeachments.
When sitting for that purpose, they shall be on oath or
affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried,
the Chief Justice shall preside: And no person shall be
convicted without the concurrence of two-thirds of the members
present.
Judgement in cases of impeachment shall not extend further than
to removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy
any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States;
but the party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and
subject to indictment, trial, judgment and punishment,
according to law.

Sect. 4. The times, places and manner of holding elections for
senators and representatives, shall be prescribed in each state
by the legislature thereof: but the Congress may at any time by
law make or alter such regulations, except as to the places of
choosing Senators.
The Congress shall assemble at least once in every year, and
such meeting shall be on the first Monday in December, unless
they shall be law appoint a different day.

Sect. 5. Each house shall be the judge of the elections,
returns and qualifications of its own members, and a majority
of each shall constitute a quorum to do business; but a smaller
number may adjourn from day to day, and may be authorized to
compel the attendance of absent members, in such manner, and
under such penalties as each house may provide.
Each house may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish
its members for disorderly behavior, and with the concurrence
of two-thirds, expel a member.
Each house shall keep a journal of its proceedings, and from
time to time publish the same, excepting such parts as may in
their judgment require secrecy; and the yeas and nays of the
members either house on any question shall, at the desire of
one-fifth of those present be entered on the journal.
Neither house, during the session of Congress shall, without
the consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days, nor
to any other place than that in which the two houses shall be
sitting.

Sect. 6. The senators and representatives shall receive a
compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and
paid out of the treasury of the United States. They shall in
all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be
privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session
of their respective houses, and in going to and returning from
the same; and for any speech or debate in either house, they
shall not be questioned in any other place.
No senator or representative shall, during the time for which
he was elected, be appointed to any civil office under the
authority of the United States, which shall have been created,
or the emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such
time; and no person holding any office under the United States,
shall be a member of either house during his continuance in
office.

Sect. 7. All bill for raising revenue shall originate in the
house of representative; but the senate may propose or concur
with amendments as on other bills.
Every bill which shall have passed the house of representatives
and the senate, shall, before it become a law, be presented to
the president of the United States; if he approve he shall sign
it, but if not he shall return it, with his objections to that
house in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the
objections at large on their journal, and proceed to reconsider
it. If after such reconsideration two-thirds of that house
shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, together with
the objections, to the other house, by which is shall likewise
be reconsidered, and if approved by two-thirds of that house,
it shall become a law. But in all such cases the votes of both
houses shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the names of
the persons voting for and against the bill shall be entered on
the journal of each house respectively. If any bill shall not
be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted)
after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a
law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress
by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall
not be a law.
Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of
the Senate and House of Representative may be necessary (except
on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the
President of the United States;
and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved by
him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by
two-thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives,
according to the rules and limitations prescribed in the case
of a bill.

Sect. 8. The Congress shall have power

excises shall be uniform throughout the United States.

carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other

United States, or in any department or officer thereof.

be prohibited by the Congress prior to the year one thousand

Each state shall appoint, in such manner as the legislature
thereof may direct, a number of electors, equal to the whole
number of senators and representatives to which the state may
be entitled in the Congress: but no senator or representative,
or person holding an office of trust or profit under the United
States, shall be appointed an elector.
The electors shall meet in their respective states, and vote by

votes shall be the president, if such number be a majority of
the whole number of electors appointed; and if there be more

electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such

the vice-president.

constitution, shall be eligible to the office of president;
neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall
not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been
fourteen years a resident within the United States.
In case of the removal of the president from office, or his
death, resignation, or inability to discharge the powers and
duties of the said office, the same shall devolve on the
vice-president, and the Congress may by law provide for the
case of removal, death, resignation or inability, both of the
president and vice-president, declaring what officer shall then
act as president, and such officer shall act accordingly, until
the disability be removed, or a president be elected.
The president shall, at stated times, receive for his services,
a compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished
during the period for which he shall have been elected, and he
shall not receive within that period any other emolument from
the United States, or any of them.
Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take
the following oath or affirmation:

any subject relating to the duties of their respective offices,
and he shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for
offenses against the United States, except in cases of
impeachment.
He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the
senate, to make treaties, provided two-thirds of the senators
present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the
advice and consent of the senate, shall appoint ambassadors,
other public ministers and consuls, judges of the supreme
court, and all other officers of the United States, whose
appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which
shall be established by law. But the Congress may by law vest
the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think
proper, in the president alone, in the courts of law, or in the
heads of departments.
The president shall have power to fill up all vacancies that
may happen during the recess of the senate, by granting
commissions which shall expire at the end of their session.

Sect. 3. He shall from time to time give to the Congress
information of the state of the union, and recommend to their
consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and
expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both
houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between
them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn
them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive
ambassadors and other public ministers; he shall take care that
the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the
officers of the United States.

of the United States, shall be removed from office on
impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other
high crimes and misdemeanors.

Article III.

vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the
Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The

their offices during good behavior, and shall, at stated time,
receive for their services a compensation which shall not be
diminished during their continuance in office.

Sect. 2.

jurisdiction; to controversies to which the United States shall
be a party; to controversies between two or more States,
between a State and citizens of another State, between citizens
of different States, between citizens of the same State
claiming lands under grants of different States, and between a
State or the citizens thereof, and foreign states, citizens, or
subjects.
2. In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers
and consuls, and those in which a State shall be a party, the
Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction. In all the
other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have
appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such
exceptions and under such regulations as the Congress shall
make.
3. The trial of all crimes, except in cases of impeachment,
shall be by jury; and such trial shall be held in the State
where the said crimes shall have been committed; but when not
committed within any State the trial shall be at such place or
places as the Congress may by law have directed.

Sect. 3.

levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies,
giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of
treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same
overt act, or on confession in open court.

treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of
blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person
attained.

be proved, and the effect thereof.

Sect. 2.
1. The citizens of each State shall be entitled to all
privileges and immunities of citizens in the several States.

from which he fled, be delivered up, to be removed to the State
having jurisdiction of the crime.
3. No person held to service or labor in one State, under the
laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of
any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service
or labor, but shall be delivered up on claim of the party to
whom such service or labor may be due.

Sect. 3.
1. New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union;
but no new State shall be formed or erected within the
jurisdiction of any other State, nor any State be formed by the
junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the
consent of the legislatures of the States concerned as well as
of the Congress.
2. The Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all
needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other
property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this
Constitution shall be so construed as to prejudice any claims
of the United States, or of any particular State.

Sect. 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in
this Union a republican form of government, and shall protect
each of them against invasion; and on application of the
legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot
be convened), against domestic violence.

Article V.

The Congress, whenever two-thirds of both House shall deem it
necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or,
on the application of the legislatures of two-thirds of the
several States, shall call a convention for proposing
amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid, to all
intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when
ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several
States, or by conventions in three-fourths thereof, as the one
or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the
Congress; provided [that no amendment which may be made prior
to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any
manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section
of the first Article;] and that no State, without its consent,
shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

Article VI.

Sect. 1. All debts contracted and engagements entered into,
before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid
against the United States under this Constitution, as under the
Confederation.

Sect. 2. This Constitution, and the laws of the United States
which shall be made in pursuance thereof, and all treaties
made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the
United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the
judges in every State shall be bound thereby, anything in the
constitution or laws of any State to the contrary
notwithstanding.

Sect. 3. The Senators and Representatives before mentioned,
and the members of the several State legislatures, and all
executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and
of the several States, shall be bound, by oath or affirmation,
to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever
be required as a qualification to any office or public trust
under the United States.

Article VII.

The ratification of the conventions of nine States shall be
sufficient for the establishment of this Constitution between
the States so ratifying the same.

Done in Convention, by the unanimous consent of the States
present, the seventeenth day of September, in the year of our
Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven, and of the
Independence of the United States of America the twelfth. In
