Presidential Elections


Cobblestone October 2020. It’s an election year, so let’s explore how Americans elect their president.

This edition of COBBLESTONE Magazine gets our vote! Looking at the history of elections, the way they work, and touching on other parts of our government and Constitution, this is the perfect primer for the primaries.


Take a walk down the road to the White House as you learn what it takes to be President and learn what it takes for Presidents to become Presidents. You’ll learn it’s not all fun speeches and kissing babies—campaigning can be hard work and once you are passed that, the election itself is a complex process. You can see why it only happens every four years, and why it’s so important for all citizens to vote!
