Electing the US President According to Common Craft

By Char

Seeing as I LOVE Common Craft’s very cool topics in plain English video series, and US Election Day is right around the corner, I thought I’d share Common Craft’s Electing a US President in Plain English video with you. As usual, the video is the best explanation I have heard for this complex process yet.

And while we are on the topic of the election and the web, check out Wendy’s post on the Presidential Election 2.0 and how social media has changed the political landscape forever.

Who is going to win is a tough question to answer.


Thanks. This explains it so clearly! I am going to show it to my kids since they don’t really understand how elections work right now.


The simplicity of this video is beautiful! I love the dry humor too. It’s rare for me to sit through a 3-4 minute video – I did with this one…


How cool is that? A perfect election lession within less than 3:50 minutes. I would have whished that my school would have been such effective.
