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. U.S. elections are an example of an indirect election, because the population is not actually voting directly for the President; instead, the vote on Election Day actually chooses members of the Electoral College, who in turn elect the POTUS and VPOTUS. 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.
