Incumbent President

Barack Obama
Democratic

The United States presidential election of 2016 will be the 58th quadrennial U.S. presidential election and is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2016. The election will select Presidential electors, who in turn will elect the 45th President and the 48th Vice President of the United States. The incumbent president, Barack Obama, is ineligible to be elected to a third term due to term limits in the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Article Two of the United States Constitution stipulates that for a person to be elected and serve as President of the United States, the individual must be a natural born citizen of the United States, a minimum of 35 years old, and a resident of the United States for no less than 14 years. Candidates for the presidency often seek the nomination of one of the various political parties of the United States, in which case each party devises a method (such as a primary election) to choose the candidate the party deems best suited to run for the position and the party members will officially nominate a candidate to run on the party's behalf.

Candidates

The following notable individuals filed with the Federal Election Commission to run for President of the United States in 2016, and/or have expressed to the media that they are running. (Although these individuals are notable, that notability does not necessarily equate with viability as a candidate.)
