What Is a Presidential Election?
Penguin Random House
Who can run for president? What's the difference between America's two major political parties? Why do candidates spend so much time in Iowa and New Hampshire? And is the Electoral College really a college?
Answers to these questions and many, many more can be found in the pages of this official Who HQ guide to the 2020 US presidential election. From stump speeches to catchy slogans, debates to nominating conventions, and finally to Election Night and Inauguration Day, readers will learn all about what it takes to run for--and win--the most powerful job on earth.
Activities throughout prompt readers to think about the issues they care most about and consider what makes a good president, sparking discussion with friends and family, and encouraging them to follow along and get involved as the 2020 presidential campaign heats up. Includes a sheet of presidential bobblehead stickers and a color-your-own Electoral Map!
