The Government is a model Republic administered by the President, as executive, and two branches of Congress - the Senate, composed of two members from each State in the Union, and the House of Representatives, composed of representatives apportioned among the different States in proportion to population. The President is elected by a College of Electors, the members of which are chosen in the different States by a majority vote. The Senators are elected by the State Legislatures. Representatives are elected by a direct vote of the people.

The State Governments are independent in administering their local affairs, but cannot make laws out of harmony with the United States laws. Each State has its Governor and two legislative branches, the Senate and House of Representatives, which meet at the State capital. The Governor and State legislative representatives are elected by direct vote of the people.
