United States presidential election Type of election in the United States The election of the president and the vice president of the United States is an indirect election in which citizens of the United States who are registered to vote in one of the fifty U.S. states or in Washington, D.C., cast ballots not directly for those offices, but instead for members of the Electoral College.[note 1] These electors then in turn cast direct votes, known as electoral votes, for president, and for vice president.

Why I walked away from Democrats to support President Trump (opinion) A Black man who grew up in the Deep South had that amazing honor -- think about that. My parents had very limited education, but they instilled an indelible value system in me that laid the foundation for me to be successful.
