U.S. Presidential Election Process: Explained
Every four years in November, Americans head to the polls to elect a new President of the United States. While the entire election process can seem a little daunting to understand, there are really only a few things you need to know.

In this video, WatchMojo.com explains how U.S. presidential elections work, from the primaries and the caucuses, to the National Conventions, debates and finally Election Day itself.
