You made a presidential wannabe list and checked it twice. This is when voters decided who got a second round interview for the job.
Here's what's already happened
There were primaries and caucuses. There were debates (and debates...and debates…). There were some Tuesdays that were more super than others. And there were lots, and lots, of candidate dropouts.
And then there were two (plus two independent candidates). Now’s when each party puts a ring on a candidate and a Veep, and all the single ladies go home. There will be debates. Yes, more debates.
Republican National Convention: Cleveland, Ohio
The Republicans are coming, the Republicans are coming! Party’s in Cleveland, OH. There will be balloons. They’ll be announcing the party's platform and officially nominating a candidate.
Democratic National Convention: Philidelphia, Pennsylvania
It’s Donkey Kong in Philadelphia, PA. There will be balloons here too. And picking a top candidate to maybe go all the way to the White House.
Debate: First Presidential debate | Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York
The top two are set. Now it’s time for their first face-off. Dun dun dun.
theSkimm’s Voter Registration Deadline
You have to hire a president soon. Make sure you're registered to vote.
Debate: Only Vice Presidential debate | Longwood University in Farmville, VA
The Robins take center stage. They’ll be aiming to show their strengths wherever their Batmans are weak.
Debate: Second Presidential debate | Washington University in St. Louis
Less than one month to election day. The candidates will have to answer to any big doubts that Americans still have about their job skills.
Debate: Final Presidential debate | University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Last chance dance for the candidates to show why they’re ready to be Miss or Mr. America. No pressure.
The job offer
E-Day. Time to hire a new president. Psst...make sure you’re registered to vote.
You’ve read their resumes. You’ve seen them in action. Now’s time to give the final rose to a candidate.
You’ve hired a president. Today’s when he or she picks her desk, meets the co-workers, and gets to work. But first, the oath of office. Hand over heart, people.
