Birth states of vice presidents

This is a list of Vice Presidents of the United States by place of primary affiliation. Some vice presidents have been born in one state, but are commonly associated with another. According to the Twelfth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, no member of the Electoral College may vote for both candidates of a presidential ticket if both candidates inhabit the same state as that elector. The flags presented for the states are the present day flags, which were not necessarily adopted in the times of the earliest vice presidents.
