The election will be held on 3 November this year. President Donald Trump is the Republican Party’s candidate, while Joe Biden is the Democratic Party’s candidate. Let’s take a closer look at the election.
The American constitution determines the date of the presidential election – it’s always on the first Tuesday of November.
On that day, Americans head to the polls. That means they queue up, then go into a voting booth to make a cross next to their chosen candidate on the ballot paper, and put the ballot paper into a ballot box.
