The Presidents of the United States

The president of the United States is elected every four years under the majority list system. Candidates for the presidency must be American citizens by birthright, have resided in the country for at least 14 years and must be over 35 years of age. Under the 22nd Amendment of the Constitution (of February 26, 1951), a president can be re-elected for one time only.

A vice-president belonging to the same party is elected together with the president, who has the task of presiding over the work of the Senate and succeeding the president in the event of his death or resignation. Citizens with voting rights do not elect the president directly but, divided into constituencies corresponding to the states, elect a number of large presidential electors equal to the number of senators and representatives that each state sends to Congress. The latter in turn meet and give their vote to the candidate towards whom they are committed (in some states by law, in the majority by custom and political practice). The flights of voters of all states are open and counted in the presence of both chambers.

Each party chooses its own presidential candidate. In the event that there are several candidates within the same party, the candidate is chosen (“nomination”) through the so-called primary elections. The only legally relevant difference between the primaries and the other types of elections (in addition to the different purposes that they propose) consists in the requirement of party membership required for admission to the primaries. Active participation in such elections is governed by different laws within individual states. The multiple legal systems on the subject can be divided into two large groups: one in which no particular requirement is required of the voter other than that of being a voter (this is the case of the so-called open primaries), and one in which the voter is required to document his party membership. In the latter case, such documentation can take place in various ways: 1) registration prior to the vote; 2) registration at the time of the vote; 3) advertising in the choice of the party card; 4) commitment signed to vote for the party in the elections following the primary 5) oath of belonging to the party in the event of a dispute.

AMERICAN VIRGIN ISLANDS – Insular group of Central America that constitutes the western sector of the archipelago of the Virgin Islands, located east of Puerto Rico and west of Anguilla and integrated in turn in the leeward group, one of the two into which they divide the Lesser Antilles that separate the Caribbean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean. It is formed by the main islands of Saint Croix, Saint John and Saint Thomas, and by various smaller islands and islets.

According to acronymmonster, the sector of the Virgin Islands dependent on the United States has more than sixty islands and islets, most of them of volcanic origin, with a total surface area of ​​344 sq km. The largest island is Saint Croix, 207 sq km, the southernmost of the archipelago which has an undulating relief, with various low-altitude hills that extend to the coast. Second largest is the island of Saint Thomas, of 72 sq km, located 50 km north of Saint Croix, and characterized by mountains of medium altitude, with an irregular coastal development and many gulfs and bays, which constitute excellent natural shelters for the navigation. Saint John, the smallest of the three main islands, 54 sq km, it is a few kilometers east of Saint Thomas, from which it is separated by the Strait of Pillsbury. It is formed by high volcanic cones covered with vegetation, and two thirds of its territory is used as a national park. The highest point of the archipelago is Mount Crown, in Saint Thomas, which reaches 474m above sea level. The climate is tropical, with high temperatures throughout the year, albeit mitigated by the moderating action of the trade winds, and rainfall exceeding 1,500 mm per year. The only rivers of any importance are found in Saint Croix which, like the other two major islands, is covered by a dense tropical forest.
