Want to vote in American Presidential Election?

For those of us who are interested in who becomes the next President of the United States of America (USA), here is a chance to elect your favourite American President. The famous & popular americal financial weekly, The Economist has come out with a mock global election on American Presidency. This mock election is open for ALL people from around the globe & they can choose the candidate of their choice from among the two contestants - Republican Party's John McCain or Democratic Party's Barack Obama.

If you wish to participate in this mock election, please go to the following URL which will ask you to register your profile first and then you can vote by selecting your candidate. So, here is the route for you to pick your choice of the next American President:

Here is what The Economist has to say on this mock poll:

With America's presidential election fast approaching, everyone wants to have their say on who should take over in the White House—and now you can. From now until November 1st, you will be able to vote for your choice of the next American president in our mock global election.

Votes are cast on a country-wide level. Each country is assigned a number of votes according to the size of its population (we call these "electoral-college votes" on the model of America's actual electoral-college system). Then all the countries' votes are tallied, to determine each candidate's worldwide total. You can see at a glance which countries are pro-Obama or pro-McCain, along with their respective vote percentages. The candidate with the most electoral-college votes will win the worldwide election. Of course our winner may not be the actual winner in the real election though it will be interesting to see who The Economist's readers choose.

Don't miss the chance to have your say. Join the worldwide election and vote now.
