alright. first off, as you can probably tell im an aussie.
second. i thought the election for the new US president was next year?
Third. do you vote for the president or the party that he/she represents??
im not shure if it's different in america but here in australia, we vote for the local candidate that we like, it doesnt matter if we dont like the
party that their in as long as we believe theyre gonna be better for our local area we vote for them, then all of the votes in the area get counted,
who ever polls most votes gets that seat in parliment, all of their (all of the candidates) their total's goes towards the final tally of votes for
their party (the one they represent), the part with the highest amount of votes (australia wide) wins the election, then they(the winning party) are
the ruling government usually they have a leader before the election (i dont think anyone has had to elect a leader after one) who is then our
primeminister (same as your President)
is this a similar way to what you (the USA and it's citizens) vote like??
or have i totaly missed the target.
please help a confused aussie who wishes to follow the US presidential elections.
