A '''candidate''' is the prospective recipient of an award or [[honor]] or a [[person]] seeking or being considered for some kind of position; for example:
* to be elected to an office — in this case a candidate selection procedure occurs.
* to receive membership in a [[group]]
"Nomination" is part of the [[process]] of selecting a candidate for either election to an office, or the bestowing of an honor or award. "Presumptive nominee" is a term used when a [[person]] or [[organization]] believes that the nomination in inevitable. The [[act]] of [[being]] a candidate in a race is called a "candidacy."
