How does it work ?

Primary elections and Caucuses
These first elections enable party members to vote for the candidate that will represent their party in the General election

National Conventions
After the Primary elections and Caucuses, each party holds a convention and chooses a candidate for the Vice Presidency (a running-mate).

The general election

Candidates campaign throughout the US to get support of voters. In November, they will vote for one candidate.
When people vote in the general election , they don’t vote for the Presidential candidate, they vote electors who belong to the Electoral College. These electors will vote for their State’s preferred candidate.

The Electoral College

In December, the electors vote.  The results are given in January. The President is the candidate with more than half of the votes.
