The candidate likewise declares a Vice Presidential candidate at the time. The nominees then campaign across the US to clarify their perspectives and policies to voters and engage in civil arguments with nominees from other parties. Amid the general US election, the citizens head to the ballots to choose the suitable US presidential candidate. However, the count of those votes does not decide the victor.
