The Twenty Third Amendment.

Section 1. The District constituting the seat of Government of the United States shall appoint in such manner as the Congress may direct:

A number of electors of President and Vice President equal to the whole number of Senators and Representatives in Congress to which the District would be entitled if it were a State, but in no event more than the least populous State; they shall be in addition to those appointed by the States, but they shall be considered, for the purposes of the election of President and Vice President, to be electors appointed by a State; and they shall meet in the District and perform such duties as provided by the twelth article of amendment.

Section 2. The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

This amendment basically states that the District of Columbia has three electoral votes for president. There's really not a whole lot I have to say about this amendment-- it's pretty cut and dry. I could get into the whole electoral college system and how I think that is quite outdated and needs to be revised but let's face it...nobody wants to read me ramble on about that!

This is a cut and dry explanation of the twenty third amendment by an attorney.

This is the same random guy I have been posting quite a few videos of. Apparently he is going through every single amendment on youtube and explaining and stating his opinion on it. Surprise, it's NOT for a class!
