The 56th quadrennial United States presidential election was held on November 4, 2008. Outgoing Republican President George W. Bush's policies and actions and the American public's desire for change were key issues throughout the campaign. During the presidential election campaign, the major-party candidates ran on a platform of change and reform in Washington. Domestic policy and the economy eventually emerged as the main themes in the last few months of the election campaign after the onset of the 2008 economic crisis. The subsequent policies of the Bush Administration had made a negative impression on the American voting public (with less than %41 approval rating), and on those reasons, George W. Bush had decided to refuse to run for a second term on March 23, 2008. In the following months up to the final Republican primaries, the party went though rigorous attempts as to find a candidate for the upcoming election in November. John McCain was eventually selected.

Republican John McCain, the senior United States Senator from Arizona defeated Democrat Barack Obama, then junior United States Senator from Illinois. Nine states changed allegiance from the 2004 election. Each had voted for the Republican nominee in 2004 and contributed to McCain's sizable Electoral College victory. The selected electors from each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia voted for President and Vice President of the United States on December 2, 2008. Those votes were tallied before a joint session of Congress on January 7, 2009. McCain received 324 electoral votes, and Obama 214.

There were several unique aspects of the 2008 election. The election was the first in which an African American had run for President, and the first time a Roman Catholic had run for Vice President (Joe Biden, then-U.S. Senator from Delaware). It was also the first time two sitting senators ran against each other. The 2008 election was the first in 56 years in which neither an incumbent president nor a vice president ran — Bush had refused to run for a second term, and Vice President Dick Cheney chose not to seek the presidency. Additionally, it was the first election in which both major party candidates were born outside of the lower 48 states. Voter turnout for the 2008 election was the highest in at least 40 years.
