The United States Constitution
- No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice,
and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for
more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President
shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this Article
shall not apply to any person holding the office of President, when this Article
was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be
holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within
which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or
acting as President during the remainder of such term.
- This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years from the date of its submission to the States by the Congress.
