The four-year tenure of the Joe Biden government will end in 2024. The United States people will elect a new President and Vice-President of the USA in the upcoming election. People are speculating about the candidates and who is ahead in the election. 

US Election 2024 Date

The 2024 US election will be held on 5 November 2024. The US presidential elections are conducted every four years, this year, it will be the 60th Presidential election.

The US presidential elections are dominated by two parties mainly – the Democrats and Republican parties. The Democratic Party is one of the oldest Parties in the political diaspora of the US. The Current President Joe Biden comes from this party. 

The Republican Party has been the main rival of the Democratic Party since 1850. The party also goes by the name of Grand Old Party. Former President Donald Trump hails from the Republican Party. 

Following the 2024 US election, an important event is going on in the United States called Super Tuesday, which was scheduled for 5 March 2024.  

Concept of US Presidential Elections

The US electoral system consists of a provision of the Electoral College, in which the Americans select a group of individuals who together create the Electoral College. 

Under the US Constitution, every state has a particular number of electoral votes based on its population. The People of the US choose the 538 individuals through the votes, making them members of the Electoral College.

The electoral system of the United States gives power to people to dictate the state-level election. The President is not elected through the general election, the Electoral College will formally elect the Presidential ticket. 

The system allows the “Winner takes it all” system in all states except Maine and Nebraska, where the winner with the highest votes will receive all the state’s electoral college votes. 

In the end, the President is elected by the electoral college, not by the general elections. 

That’s why, we have seen many times that the candidate who won the most votes in state-level contests has not acquired the Presidential position, as he/she was defeated by the Electoral College.
