In line with tradition, voters have started casting ballots in four states, namely Minnesota, Virginia, South Dakota and Wyoming ahead of the United States presidential election 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.
Former Vice President, Joe Biden has chosen Senator Kamala Harris to fly the Democratic Party flag in the election.
The series of presidential primary elections and caucuses were held from February to August 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 parties’ nominees for president and vice president.
