This power point presentation covers presidential elections in the United States. The presentation covers what candidates must do before primaries, during the primary elections, and during the general election season. Also covered are the topics of national conventions, primary frontloading, and the electoral college. This presentation is wonderful for Advanced Placement Government classes, but still simple enough for any government class to understand. There are two video clips included in the presentation. One discusses the importance of the conventions. The other details the importance of the debates.
