    Before announcing their intention to run, politicians are required to file paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to start an "exploratory" committee. This allows them to begin fundraising and feeling out the public's reaction to their policies.

    Candidates who decide to run for office will first have to compete for their party's nomination in the primary elections. They are chosen at the parties' respective conventions in the summer of 2008. See GovSpot's feature on The Presidential Election Process for more information or return to the Election Center.
