How Elections Work

May 30, 2023

An important part of the presidential election is selecting the front-runners to represent the two major political parties. Technically, one could vote for whatever candidate they want through write-in ballots, but in practice, the fight for the presidency is between the Republican (or GOP) candidate and the Democratic candidate. These candidates are selected through the general primary elections, a critical part of the process.

These elections are incredibly important due to the fact that they determine who the runners will be in November. Because of this, one would assume that the voter turnout for the primaries and the presidential election would be similar. However, the difference here is staggering.
