The U.S. Presidential Election is the toughest race in the world to win. Find out what it takes to become the Commander in Chief! Since we have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, it's important that the people — including you — know what goes on during an election year and how the people pick a president. Every four years, Americans elect a new president. The election is the top story on television shows and in the news nearly every day for the year leading up to the election. Yet most people don't know very much about how the election really works. Who votes? Who can run? What happens on election day? What does it take to win? Young readers will learn all this and more in this updated edition of The Election Book.
