Do you know what the Election Process is? The Election Process has five steps, Requirements, Primaries, Convention, Election, and Electoral College.

Each political party chooses people to run for president. They all try and there are primaries to choose only the few that will actually run for the president in the main election. Convention: Republicans and Democrats each have a convention. This is when we choose our candidate. A convention is when the two citizens talk and make people think that they should be voted for. This happens every four years such as this year. Election: This is when the main candidates are voted on to see who wins the office. This election is November, 6 2012. Presidential elections are in every four years. People go to polling places to vote. Pollings are little rooms that look like stalls that people go in and write their vote and put it in a box. The pollings all have curtains that cover the inside so your vote can be secret. Electoral College: Electoral college isn’t a college, it is a group of people who are chosen to elect a candidate for a certain office. There are 538 people in the electoral college of the United States. The electoral college will decide who will be the next president. Now you know what the election process is. Always remember to keep your vote secret, we all have our rights. All americans should vote. Be ready to see the election.
