Transcript of Election of the President

The Election of the President Requirements Cantidates for president have to meet the three requirements:
At least 35 years old
Natural born citizen of the United States of America
A resident of the USA for at least 14 years
What happens First? Primaries and Caucuses: The first step in the election process is an important one. It all begins with a group of chosen people that represent their parties (democrat, republican, etc) and are the primary candidates for president. This group of people speaks to their fellow party members and gives them reasons why they believe they should be elected president. Each person gives information and such on the things that they would like to do as president and what they would like to accomplish in the time they have. After this their fellow party members take a vote and decide which candidate they believe would be a good leader. National Conventions Though the presidential candidate has already been chosen for the party the vice president has not. Each party has a National Convention somewhere in the US that allows the Presidential candidate to choose people that he or she believes would be a good person to run with for VP (vice president). The PC (presidential candidate) then talks and figures out these people’s views and what they would like to do as VP, and the type of things that are important to them. From there the PC determines the top few (three) that would be most likely to be a good VP and weighs the pros and cons. From there the president (along with help from others in the party) chooses whom he or she would like to run with. Step Three: the General Election The Presidential Candidate and Vice President, along with other party members, etc, go around and campaign to try and get people to vote for them. They speak in front of large public crowds, in front of political assemblies and state or national conventions, etc. Public speaking is very important to the candidates because they need as much support as they can get in order to win the election of the peoples themselves. This step also includes the general election of the president where anyone (that is over 18 and has the rights to vote) can vote for the person they believe should be president. The Electoral College Though the peoples votes themselves are important there are also other things that are important as well. The Electoral College is one of the most important steps. For each state there are a certain number of electors, based off of the number of members that state has in congress, that elect the president. Each elector gets one electoral vote that they use to vote for the president, this is usually for the person that their electoral section voted for but it doesn’t have to be. After the general election, or the third step, this group of electorates cast their own votes for president. In all there are 538 votes, the nominee that gets 270 of the votes or more is now the president-elect. Always remember:

Vote, your voice is important, make it heard. Other people might not care, but you do. Though sometimes I wonder where the votes go...
