Wikinfo - U.S. presidential election. It is election day in the USA. In honor of this event, I have blogged the Wikinfo enyclopedia article on the American presidential election.
From the site:
The United States presidential elections determine who becomes the President of the United States.
How elections are administered
The election of the United States President is governed by Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution, as amended by Amendment XII.
The President and Vice President are elected on the same ticket by the U.S. Electoral College, whose members are elected directly from each state; the President and Vice President serve four-year terms.
