2020 United States presidential election
November 3 @ 7:00 am - 7:00 pm
The 2020 United States presidential election is scheduled for Tuesday, November 3, 2020. It will be the 59th quadrennial presidential election. Voters will select presidential electors who in turn will vote on December 14, 2020, to either elect a new president and vice president or reelect the incumbents Donald Trump and Mike Pence respectively. The series of presidential primary elections and caucuses are being held from February to June 2020. This nominating process is an indirect election, where voters cast ballots selecting a slate of delegates to a political party’s nominating convention, who then in turn elect their party’s nominees for president and vice president. This is the first presidential election since 1976 not to include a member of the Bush, Clinton, or Paul political families on the ballot. The winner of the 2020 presidential election is scheduled to be inaugurated on January 20, 2021.
