The United States presidential election of 2040, to be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2040, will be the the 63rd quadrennial U.S. presidential election. Due to low approval ratings, incumbent President DeSantis declined to seek a second term of his presidency. The Democratic ticket of Florida Senator Owen Sanger and Georgia Governor Jon Ossoff pulled off a stunning upset and defeated the Republican ticket of former First Daughter of the United States & Congresswoman Ivanka Trump and U.S. Senator from Illinois Devin Kurtz. Sanger became the youngest elected president in United States, beating John F. Kennedy's previous record in 1960. Sanger took office as the 50th President, and Ossoff as the 53rd Vice President, on January 20, 2041. Concurrent with the presidential election, Senate, House, and many gubernatorial and state and local elections were also held on November 6.

Voters selected members of the Electoral College in each state, in most cases by "winner-takes-all" plurality; those state electors in turn voted for a new president and vice president on December 21, 2040. Sanger received 4,557,178 (2.5%) more votes than Trump nationwide and although Trump won the popular vote contest in more individual states (26 to 24), Sanger won a 313 to 225 Electoral College victory. Sanger did exceptionally well in the Sun Belt compared to previous Democratic nominees, in part attributing to being from Florida. In addition, connecting Trump to the unpopularity of her father, former President Donald Trump, and incumbent President DeSantis, ultimately allowed him to outperform in typically Republican states and districts, and three in particular. Pollsters failed to show this. He carried South Carolina for the Democrats for the first time since 1976, when it was carried by Jimmy Carter. Montana, carried by Sanger, went Democratic for the first time since 1992 when it was won by Bill Clinton. In addition, Sanger would also carry Nebraska's 2nd district, the first time that voted Democratic since 2008 when it was carried by Barack Obama. Prior to the election, few pollsters predicted Sanger would defeat Trump, let alone by the margin he accomplished it.

The series of presidential primary elections and caucuses took place between January 18 and June 6, 2040, staggered among the 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. This nominating process is also an indirect election, where voters cast ballots for a slate of delegates to a political party's nominating convention, who then in turn elect their party's presidential nominee. The 2040 Democratic National Convention took place from July 17-20, in Atlantic City, New Jersey while the 2040 Republican National Convention took place from July 24-27, 2040 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sanger is the youngest president ever elected, as well as the first to be of the millennial generation. Trump was the first woman to be the presidential nominee of the Republican Party.
