Summary

The election of a president is one of the most important events in American politics. While the concept is the same, the process of electing presidents has changed considerably since George Washington became the first president of the United States: political parties now play a key role in the election process, campaigns dramatically affect voters’ impressions of the candidates, and the rise of television and the Internet has greatly increased the information available to voters. Informative and accessible, How the President Is Elected is a revealing, full-color look at what it takes to run for president, how candidates are chosen, and more.
