<<Previous Question | Question Index | Subject Index | Constitutional Index | Next Question>>

Q120. "Since it is true that the president must be a naturally born citizen, does the vice president also have to be a naturally born citizen?"

A. The Vice President has the same qualifications as the President - if you cannot be President, you also cannot be Vice President. This is specified in the last sentence of the 12th Amendment.
