Once you have chosen your party you may now campaign around the country to win the favor of the members in your party.

THE PRIMARY

This is where the members of your party will privately vote by ballot which candidate they want to represent the party in the General Election.

STEP 2: NATIONAL CONVENTION

Party Vote

If you have made it here, you are now at one or your biggest challenges. Here you will try to win the vote to be the final presidential candidate for your party. There will be more than one convention around the country for not only your party but for the other standing partys.


Vice President

Congrats you have won the vote from your party and you will be representing your party in the General Election. But before you go on you must pick a member of your party to be your right hand man. This person if you are to win the election will be known as the Vice President.

STEP 3: GENERAL ELECTION

Voting Day

Today is the day the people of your country will cast in there votes. But remember these votes are not the final votes. These votes goes to the electors of the state the vote was cast in. The ballots from each state will be tallied up and given to the electors so they can decide who as a state should be president.



Quick Advice

Keep your head high. You may be loosing or winning by popular vote but this isn't the end. The electoral vote could be the opposite of the popular vote meaning how you think you are doing in the election so far could flip on you. Remember the election in 2000...

STEP 4: ELECTORAL COLLEGE

The last stretch

The votes are caste and its time for the electors to decide. Depending on how much each state is represented in congress, the state will be given a certain numbers of electors they may have. The state may gain or lose electors depending on the change of their representation in congress. The electors for each state will look at the number of ballots for each candidate, and depending on that number, each elector will give there electoral vote for who they want as the president.


The count

In all there are 538 electoral votes. Each state has caste in their votes and you must get at least half or approximately 270 electoral votes to win the election.



Quick Advice

Keep calm. The wait for the votes can be long and you don't want to look like a fool freaking out. Represent yourself proudly and calmly to decrease the risk of you doing something that risks you of losing votes.
