It takes almost two years from the time the candidates announce they are running to the day that one of them will be sworn into office. Let's take a look at how the winning candidate will get there.
Children may not be able to vote in the general election, but from October 6 through November 6, 2012, nearly 2,000 kids voted at the library and online for their choice of President.
This year's candidates were:
Fly Guy: "Not just your average fly on the wall!"
Ladybug Girl: "She never flies away when things get hard!"
And the winner is ... Fly Guy!
