Constitutional FAQ Answer #82

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

Q82. "To whom is the president required to tender his resignation? I think it is the Chief Justice but can't find out for sure."

A. This is not part of the Constitution, but of the U.S. Code (3 USC 20). The resignation is only valid in writing, signed by the resigner, when delivered to the Secretary of State. This rule applies to the President and the Vice President.
