Who takes over if the vice president dies?

Answer

According to the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, if the office of the vice president becomes empty, the president must nominate a new vice president. If both houses of Congress confirm the choice, the nominee assumes the office.

Prior to the 25th Amendment, the Constitution did not provide a means by which to fill a vacant vice presidency, and the office had sometimes lain open for years at a time. Since the adoption of the amendment in 1967, two men have ascended to the vice presidency using the procedure outlined in the 25th Amendment: Gerald Ford in 1973 and Nelson Rockefeller in 1974.
