What amendment changed the way the Electoral College votes for president and vice president to separate ballots?

Short Answer: The Twelfth Amendment. Long Answer: In 1800, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr ran for president. It was implied in the Democratic-Republican party that Jefferson was to be president and Burr to be vice president. Each Democratic-Republican elector cast both votes for these men - one for Jefferson and one for Burr. This situation resulted in a tie between the men for presidency. After much dispute, Jefferson was given the presidency. The Twelfth Amendment, ratified in 1804, called for separate elections for each office (president, vice president, etc.).

What role does the Vice President play in Congress?

The Vice President is the President of the Senate. While this job is often delegated to a Senator, to act as president pro tempore, the Vice President has the actual job. The responsibility of the President of the Senate, whether the VP or the president pro tempore, is to cast a deciding vote in cases of a tie. However, the VP can only cast a vote at that time, while the president pro tempore can vote in all occasions a normal senator can. Thus the president pro tempore essentially has 2 votes, with only one used in most cases.
