Today, Obama or Romney are going to be elected President of the United States. The process to decide who is going to rule the most important nation of the world is very long and complicated, that’s why we would like to make it clearer for you.
The first resource is a very simple website where you can read all about the process, the requirements to be eligible as a president, information about the candidates for president and vice-president, the campaign, etc. The same site offers another list of resources that you can find clicking here.
Finally we highly recommend you to watch this video, “Electing a US President in Plain English”. It’s taken from The Commoncraft Show. If you want to read the transcript of the video, you can find it here, under the video you can see “video info and transcript”, click there.
