Electing The President

Here is a great resource called Electing the President: a Guide to the Election Process from the NIE Institute.

The U.S. presidential election is the biggest event in American politics. It’s an exciting and complicated process that begins immediately after the preceding election and doesn’t end until the voters have their say. What happens during this extended campaign is a quest not just for votes, but also for political contributions, favorable media coverage, Internet attention, endorsements, and all the other makings of a winning candidacy for the highest elected office in America. Key events along the way include the primaries and caucuses, the party conventions, and the debates—not to mention all the speeches, polls, and focus groups, plus the barrage of radio and television commercials imploring you to vote this way or that. It’s easy to be overwhelmed. And that’s why the League of Women Voters produced this 15-page supplement.
