Publicity and Electioneering Activities
It is important that a candidate becomes well known in the area they are hoping to represent and to this end they will often undertake a great deal of publicity work, such as leafleting houses, displaying posters, and canvassing door-to-door for votes. Publicity costs money and so the more wealthy parties will have an advantage. In addition, during a general election you will often see party political broadcasts for the main parties outlining their policies. This is because they can afford publicity campaigns that include film-making.

The 2012 election was the culmination of the efforts of the Republican Party to regain control of the Senate and to remove President Obama from office. Almost two-thirds of the thirty three class one seats were held by democrats and almost one-third of the total seats for election were left vacant and up for grabs as a result of an incumbent not running for reelection. The Democratic Party only held a slight majority in the Senate. The expected results was a repeat of the

PARTY SYSTEM IN INDIA
Political parties are the most significant mechanisms in a democratic government. They both express and form public opinion. They are the chief mechanism of informing and influencing the electorate. As majority party forms the government in centre, the same is valid for the state legislature. Thus, the political parties become all the most important in analyzing any kind of politics in India. As everyone is free to contest election and form organization of political behavior, different political parties have rooted their stem in Indian politics. Here we will discuss some of the national and state political parties which had

Many people had to stand in line for forty-five minutes or more this morning in order to vote. The line at a small polling place outside Cordele wound across the room, out the door, and down the hill. This turnout astounded everyone because they have never seen it before. In rural Crisp County, GA voters turned out by the droves. A Crisp County listener may have heard the news at five that, according to WALB in Albany, polling places in all twenty-four states participating in Super Tuesday have had the same turnout. The news anchor called this primary election a “history making” one. Not only has this country made history by the turnout in this primary, but also

In 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention decided on this particular system for electing the president. The Electoral College is still in effect today, but some adjustments have been made over the years. The electors voted for two candidates at first. The one with the highest number of votes became president. The one with the second-highest number became vice president. In 1796, political foes were chosen for the two posts -- Federalist John Adams for president and Democratic-Republican Thomas Jefferson for vice president.
There was a tie between Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr in the next election. The House of

"The people we call heroes do not usually start out as unusual.They are usually ordinary people with ordinary human weaknesses—fear, doubt, and self-interest. In fact, they live regular lives until they distinguish themselves by having to deal with a dilemma or difficult situation.
A hero is an individual who can face misfortune and overcome it in their quest to improve the quality of the life that surrounds them.People never all learn the same way, but most people are most likely to learn when they are actively engaged or "acting" on a subject.

instead of something decided by your upbringing or you socio-economic group.
Past general elections have shown evidence that the party leader and the image they portray to the public is of the most importance, with elections having significant swings based on the image of the party leader. It is often the case that opinion polls also show this and that having a party leader who appeals to the electorate rather than policies will often result in a win in the general election. The fact that a party’s leader’s appearance can affect the outcome of a general election is significant in showing that voting is becoming a rational exercise. It can also be argued that voting is a rational exercise due to voting behaviour patterns during times of economic crisis, the government in power can often lose support due to the blame of these problems. It also allows other parties to see what the electorate want and offer it to them in order to increase their own support.

A Time for Choosing, also known as The Speech, was a speech presented during the 1964 U.S. presidential election campaign by future president Ronald Reagan on behalf of Republican candidate Barry Goldwater.
Many versions of the speech exist, since it was altered over many weeks. Contrary to popular belief, however, the speech was not given at the 1964 Republican National Convention in San Francisco, California as a nomination speech for Barry Goldwater. Richard Nixon gave that nomination speech. Reagan, though he campaigned for Goldwater, did not use "A Time for Choosing" until October 27, 1964, when it was part of a pre-recorded television program, Rendezvous with Destiny. In his

The method of electing the President and the Vice President of the United States of America is the Electoral College – an indirect voting system and not a national popular vote. This system was implemented by the Founding Fathers about 200 years ago (Shea 2005, 4-6)
In recent times the debate about whether the Electoral College is still an effective system considering the circumstances the United States has to face now, is arising more and more. “American society is highly polarized in its perception of the existing election system” (Belenky 2012, ix).

Part of Patassé's popularity and reason for winning the presidential election was that he made a promise to pay back all soldiers and government workers their salaries but due to the countries economic problems he could not achieve this. This started up a revolt in 1996 by soldiers. There was much looting and rioting by the unpaid soldiers. Patassé's response was to ask the french military in to supresss them.

Canada went through many of the changes the U.S. did, as it defined itself as an independent nation. The problem with Canada was that there were French speaking people and English speaking people throughout the country. There were two different cultures that were seeking their own identity as a nation. Canada constructed a transcontinental railroad which led to a migration of the western part on the country. With this came development of commercial and industrial practices. The election of French-Canadian prime minister, helped to unify the country.

Jacques Seguela writes about political campaigns and communications not merely as an expert analyst, but as an experienced practitioner. Hence his latest book contains both insights worth heeding, but also enlivening tales of his own experience. He is observer and participant; outsider looking in, and insider looking out. There is much to look at, not least in France with a Presidential election looming, and the outcome far from easy to predict.
We live in a world defined by the pace of change, and whilst the velocity of that change has not always impacted upon our political institutions, many of which would remain recognisable to figures of history, it most certainly has impacted upon
