Steps to Becoming The President!
1. Caucuses, a vote that involves numerous people from one party debating on what is the best candidate then voting
2. Primaries, when people take silent, personal votes so that no one knows you voted.
A real life way to explain it is if everyone wants cake, but what kind. If you were using the "primary method" everyone would write what flavor they want on a piece of paper, then the votes are counted and whichever has the larger amount wins, get to be the flavor of cake.
If you are using the "Caucus method", then it would be a debate why people should choose red velvet over vanilla cake or chocolate over vanilla. After, there would be a vote, like a show of hands over who wants what and the flavor with the most votes wins.
The General Election, which will be held on November 8th of this year, is where the people from all over the US, go to their polling places and vote for their desired candidate, the people's votes do not directly count in the election process; however, they are taken to the electors who vote for president.
