See the main dates for elections in the United States in 2024

Campaigns for the United States presidential election have begun, with President Joe Biden seeking re-election. In the Republican party, Nikki Haley and Donald Trump are competing for the nomination to contest the election.

Even with Trump's strong influence and dominance among Republicans, he needs to win the nomination after a series of primary elections. Furthermore, another point of attention will be the presidential debates.

All of this will happen with November 5th in focus, when the general elections will take place. See the main dates for the United States elections in 2024.
