In school, a young girl named Grace is learning about presidents. She is surprised to learn that there has never been a female president. Grace decides that she wants to run for president and her teacher organizes an election. Grace and Thomas, a student from another class, are running against one another. The students learn about the electoral college and Grace and Thomas both run presidential campaigns. They create slogans, buttons, posters, and come up with promises.
