Not counting George Washington, who was a political independent, it happened in 1796. Under the original Constitutional article, the Vice President was the presidential candidate with the second highest number of electoral votes. John Adams (a Federalist) was elected President, and Thomas Jefferson (a Democratic-Republican) became Vice President. With the rise of political parties, having disputes between the two offices proved unwieldy, as did the election itself : In 1800, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr (from the same party) accidentally tied in the balloting for President, throwing the election into the House of Representatives.

The passage of the Twelfth Amendment (1804) established that the P and VP would run for election separately and on a "Joint Ticket". In theory, "faithless electors" could simply vote for a P of one party and a VP of another (however, many would be punished by state law). They could also abstain from voting for the VP which would allow the other Vice Presidential nominee to have more votes. An example of a Rogue or Faithless elector is in 2000, when Barbara Simmons refused to vote for Al Gore and Joe Lieberman as she pledged to do so, so that people would take notice of Washington DC's lack of representation.

Before the enactment of the 12th amendment, each elector cast two votes. The second vote getter became the vice- president . John Adams, a Federalist, had 71 electoral votes, Jefferson, a Democratic-Republican, 68, so Adams was elected President and Jefferson vice-president.

This did not happen after the 12th amendment, which was proposed after the elections of 1796 and 1800.

(Abraham Lincoln was a Republican and his Vice President, Andrew , had been a life-long Democrat. He was the only southern senator who remained loyal to the union. Lincoln added him to his ticket as a conciliatory gesture to the South. Johnson returned to the Democratic party after he was President.)
