  • Happy 45th birthday Honey! 
  • First, to be a candidate for president you must be at least 35 years old, be a natural born citizen, and live in the US for 14 years. A canidate also usually holds a public office. 
  • Choose Me!!!!!
  • Next a candidate must be nominated. Typically the sitting president will automatically get a nomination. Historically, senators from large states with metropolitan areas are most often nominated. 
  • You should run for president because you have been such a good senator for us. 
  • Now the candidate must win the primaries and caucuses around the states to get to the national convention. This is a very exausting process going to many different states in a short amount of time. 
  • Ballot Box
  • I'm voting for Bill Jones in our closed primary. 
  • Next, the candidates compete to earn the party nomination. The candidate gives an acceptance speech and names their vice president, and tries to establish an image of a party leader. 
  • Now the candidates campaign, debate, and work to gain as many votes as possible. This process is very costly, with most canidates spending millions of dollars to fund the campaign. 
  • I should be your president. I will work for you!
  • After national election day, the candidate who wins 270 electoral votes wins, is named the president- elect, is confirmed by congress, and is then inaugurated and officially becomes president of the United States. 
  • Together, we will make America a new country!
