  • The Path to Presidency
  • 1. Nomination
  • Having substantial, well-known, and relatively controversy-free record in public office helps
  • The most "electable" candidate will be nominated!
  • Through these intraparty meetings, potential candidates are chosen to go to the party's convention
  • 2. Primary Election and Caucuses
  • Primary voters and caucus participants choose delegates to support their favored candidate
  • Both major parties hold separate national conventions where delegates vote to pick the party's presidential candidate 
  • Both candidates from each party try to convince the people that he/she is the best for the country
  • 3. National Convention  &  4. Campaign
  • After the conventions, each candidate that is chosen has a campaign organization that works to present the candidate in the best possible light
  • Millions of voters go to the polls in all 5 states to vote for their favored presidential candidate on the Tuesday following the first Monday in Novemeber
  • 5. General Election Day 
  • The President is not technically elected by the popular vote of the people. The popular vote is for the Electors of the Electoral College.
  • The candidate that receives the popular vote in a State receives that State's electoral vote(s)
  • 6. Electoral College  &  7. Inauguration
  • If a candidate does, then, on January 20th, he/she is inaugurated at a formal ceremony and is admitted into office as President!
  • To be elected, a candidate must receive at least 270 out of 538 electoral votes
