Since the birth of the American nation and the advent of our democracy, it is “we the people” who decide who will rule over us. In our nation, an impeccable birth and heredity is just not enough. Neither is a bank full of cash. We decided that royalty wasn’t “our cup of tea” when we steeped POUNDS of it in the Boston Harbor all of those years ago. From then on, voting and elections are the alternatives we’ve chosen. And though “our guy” isn’t always the winner, with democratic elections, we all win!
That said, understanding how the American election process works can be a little confusing, perhaps even overwhelming. However, democracy is easier to decipher than you think – especially when you have access to all the right information.
