1. vice-president2. Speaker of the House

3. President pro tempore of the Senate

4. Secretary of State.

Be sure you understand that a new vice-president is chosen as soon as possible if the vice-president dies or becomes president. A person on this list becomes president only if all the people above him are eliminated in some way.
