The U.S. Election Process

July 13, 2016

It’s that very special time in the United States: presidential election season. You learned in middle and high school all about delegates and the electoral college, but that was a long time ago. Now that you’re a smart, voting-seasoned adult, it doesn’t hurt to get a refresher.

– Why do we have delegates and super-delegates?
– What exactly are caucuses and why do some states have them?
– How does the electoral college work — and does it work like it was intended to?
– What are some of the big issues in this year’s presidential election?
…and much more.

Get answers to questions you’ve had for a long time about our election system, and meet up with a community of people curious about the same things you are.
