how our primary elections actually work

Got a case of USA fever?

Are you jamming out to the Broadway hit Hamilton soundtrack* non-stop (pun intended for all my fellow Hamilton fans out there!).

Has your interest in the way America works suddenly gone way up?

Have you been hearing about caucuses and primaries out the waz since Iowa’s caucus Monday 2/1/16?

Are you one of the people who needs a refresher on how our primary elections actually work (slash whole Presidential election process) since your 8th Grade American History class (raises hand)?

Check out Lifehacker’s breakdown on the primary election process

More importantly, check out when your primary or caucus is, mark your calendar, and make your citizenship count, Bossery!

*Public Service Announcement: do yourself an amazing kindness, and listen to all of  Hamilton in order. Then bask in the creative genius of creator/star Lin-Manuel Miranda. Seriously, it will change your life on multiple levels. Feel free to fangirl with me below!

Lucy Ross | Editor-in-Chief

I went to NYU for Film & TV and had the entrepreneur’s spirit since being a tot when I contracted chores out to my older sister for a profit (ha!). I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for LikeABossGirls.com. As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving as Co-Director for three consecutive years for the Fusion Film Festival of NYU, celebrating women in film, TV, and new media.
