President

A president is the leader of a country or a company or other group. A president is usually elected by the people in that group. Voting is one way to elect a president.

Electing a President

The President of the United States is elected by the electoral college. Some other countries choose a president this way. In some, the Parliament does it. Some countries have direct elections to choose a president. Many countries have a monarch instead of a president and some have neither.

Companies have presidents. They are elected by the people who own part of the company. In some companies, the people who are workers for the company elect (vote for) their company president.
