Contest between Hillary Clinton (D) and Donald Trump (R) for President of the United States from 2016 to 2020.
The United States presidential election of 2016, constitutionally prescribed to occur on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, will be the 58th quadrennial U.S. presidential election. Voters will select presidential electors, who in turn will vote for a new president and vice president through the Electoral College. The term limit established in the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution prevents the incumbent president, Barack Obama of the Democratic Party, from being elected to a third term. If President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden serve out the remainder of their respective terms, the 2016 election will determine the 45th President and 48th Vice President of the United States.

Businessman and reality television personality Donald Trump became the Republican Party presidential nominee on July 19, 2016, after defeating Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Ohio Governor John Kasich, Florida Senator Marco Rubio and several other candidates in the Republican primary elections. Former Secretary of State and New York Senator Hillary Clinton became the Democratic Party presidential nominee on July 26, 2016 after defeating Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. This election will mark the first time a woman is a presidential nominee of a major political party. It also marks the first time since 1944 where both major party candidates ran from the same state.
