Vermont Elections: What's At Stake In 2016?

Why the 2016 Presidential Election Could Impact Your Way Of Living For Generations to Come

Democrats and Republicans The 2016 Presidential Election is crucial to both Republicans and Democrats since the next President of the United States could nominate as many as four Supreme Court justices. As many as four seats on the Supreme Court could become vacant during the next few years with four supreme court justices over the age of 80. This means the next president could have the power to transform the supreme court, and American law, for generations to come. (See Election Dates and Deadlines)

President Barack Obama The United States presidential election of 2016 is an Open Race since the Incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama is term-limited and cannot run for re-election to a third term in office.

President Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States on January 20, 2009, and was sworn in for his second term on January 20, 2013.
