Presidential Election Process Lapbook (Grades 6-12)
from Knowledge Box Central
KBC600216 (Middle School, High School)
One of the most important events in American government and politics is the election of the president. This event is held every four years and is often compared to a race. We say that someone is running for office and that the presidential race is on. People who are trying to be elected to a particular official job are called candidates. Almost any citizen who wants to be president can announce that they are a candidate. Usually, serious candidates for president are people with a lot of experience in government (e.g., governors of states or members of Congress). Choosing presidential candidates can begin more than two years before the actual election.
