The 2024 election will be an important one for voters across the United States as citizens will cast their ballots to choose who will serve as America’s next president. While many are anticipating a rematch between incumbent President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, a long road stands between now, the debate stage, and the ballot box. Before voters cast their ballots in the general election they must first select who will earn the nomination to be on that ballot when the time arrives. While Article II, Section I of the United States Constitution details the procedures for electing the president, it does not provide an answer to how we nominate the individuals we elect for president. Under our current two-party system, nominating presidential candidates is determined by primaries, caucuses, delegates, and ultimately Convention votes.
