"I'm just a Bill"

With all the interest in the current US Presidential election, it's important to remember what it's all about. Thanks to this FCC policy most Americans of my generation learned a bit about their country from Schoolhouse Rock - this video being one of the better known: The presidential election is one of around 450 Federal offices up for election (and technically the presidency isn't even one of them). All 414 seats in the House (plus some non-voting seats in the House) and around 33 seats in the Senate are up for grabs on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November.
