US primary elections 2020 explained. The race to the White House

The U.S primary elections explained. Before the presidential election (November 2020), the ones running for president carry out campaigns all over the U.S to win support. Then, each state votes to choose their favorite candidate.

Who votes?

Depends on each state. Some states have closed primaries (only voters registered with that party can vote), others open primaries (the people can vote) and caucuses (local gatherings of voters who vote at the end of the meeting).

The two main U.S parties are the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.

Among the most popular democratic candidates are Elisabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden (remember the impeachment?), Michael Bloomberg, Pete Buttigieg…

Now, Trump has no real political rival within the Republican Party.

So… ¿When do we know who will run against Trump?

Primaries last about about 5 months. So, in June, we’ll know the democrat that will face Trump in the general election.
