The House of Representatives elects the President when no candidate wins an Electoral College majority. The player with the lowest number of ECVs is eliminated. The remaining three players cast votes for the states they have won in the election. Each state casts one vote in the House. You need a majority of these (13) to win the election.

The eliminated player casts his states' votes for any of the other three candidates.

Alternatively, a group may allocate the eliminated player's votes automatically. If the fourth player is Clay, his states vote for Adams. If Adams was last, his votes go to Clay. If Jackson is fourth, his people support Crawford. Calhoun's states go to Jackson, if he is a candidate. If Jackson is out then Calhoun's states go to Crawford.

If Crawford is out, his eastern states (Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont) go to Adams. His western states (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, and Ohio) support Clay, and the southern ones (all the rest) go to Jackson.

Keep voting until someone gets 13 states.
