You Think You Want To Be President?
We’re all seeing the assorted candidates for President. What’s involved in running for office?
In the United States Constitution, there are only three requirements:
- You must have been born in the United States, or one of your parents was born in the U.S.
- You must be 35 years of age
- You must have lived in the U.S. for 14 years.
That’s it, as far as the Constitution is concerned. Technically, when people vote for a candidate, they are voting for the one who has the support of the Electoral College.
