Everything You Need to Know About Electing the President

The battle for the White House in 2016 is already well underway. With presidential elections just a few weeks away, the League has answers to voters' most frequently asked questions about the process of electing the president. We have once again teamed up with the Newspaper in Education Institute to produce Electing the President, a handy guide outlining all you need to know about the presidential election process. The guide will appear in newspapers nationwide as well as be shared with schools, community organizations and voters who need a helping hand as they navigate the election process.

From helping navigate the complex nomination process to providing succinct tips for making sense of the daily barrage of campaign coverage and advertising, Electing the President serves as a go-to resource all the way up to Election Day. Check out our PDF guide here -- then tell us what you're paying attention to this election season!

The League of Women Voters encourages informed and active participation in government. We work to raise understanding of major policy issues and influence public policy through education. The League does not support or oppose any political party or candidate. We advocate only on issues that members have studied and on which a consensus has been reached. In an era of proliferating powerful special interests, the League's advocacy in the public interest is increasingly recognized as an essential voice of democracy.
