The 20th Amendment is very important in the American presidential election
The US President was sworn in on March 4 before the 20th Amendment in the United States. Till 1933, the oath-taking ceremony of the newly elected President was held on 4 March. In fact, the American presidential election process is a bit complicated, it took a long time for the election to reach the capital. It was a long time of four months before the new President was sworn in and the former President was retained. This was called the 'Lame duck period'. Technological capabilities and resources in America grew rapidly over time. The counting of votes was accelerated due to modern technology. The four-month gap was therefore reduced. For this, the Constitution was amended and on 20 January, the day of swearing in of the new President was fixed.
