Before we go through big writings, there are simple questions like why US citizen cant vote directly? what are minimum qualification of becoming a president? or can I be the president of USA?
US election goes way back to 1800 BC. and it was really difficult to run a national outreach for votes given the size and climate conditions.
The framers of constitution decided to go for vote representation , rather than vote from whole population, as majorly vote would mean big cities will have a dominance in vote power thus getting more favors,
US current has 538 electors which represnt all states and half plus one vote is required from these electors to win the US presidential election.
electors are not senators
Who can be the president
A president must be at least 35 years old, a “natural born US citizen” and a US resident for at least 14 years.
I have all qualification, can i be in race of president ?
yes you can, but make sure to get the vote of electors as popular vote will not get you in office 😉
