To create a dynamic and exciting political environment, weekly primaries will determine the top three candidates for the election in November. The most active candidates from the previous week are eligible for a primary runoff. Runoffs will take place Monday through Saturday and pit Democrat against Democrat, Republican against Republican, and Independent candidates against other Independents.
Activity and popularity are measured in two ways. Candidates rate each other’s platforms up or down and an algorithm developed by U4prez.com measures campaign activity. This algorithm gives the candidates a candidate rank or "CR", which will represent half of the total score. Candidates create "sound bites" to inform their existing supporters and create blogs to attract potential supporters. The candidates also debate in several issue-oriented forums, and if they find themselves in a runoff, they must respond to their opponents in a primary debate forum.
The contest is winner take all, with the top three primary winners in a showdown for the cash. Last year’s race was won by a Democrat after a first ever tie in initial balloting between the top Republican and Democratic Party candidates. The site has been a bastion of balance, with a Republican winning the previous year, an independent in 2008, and a Democrat in 2007.
