Once elected and after Congress has certified the Electoral votes, a President of The United States may only be removed from office by impeachment by the House followed by conviction by the Senate, or by the more prudent means of resignation ( a la Richard Nixon).

Johnson and Clinton were impeached, but no President has ever been convicted and removed from office.

That process is known as "recall." A petition is passed around to the citizens who could vote for that politician and if a certain number of voters sign the petition for a recall vote, the question of whether the politician should be recalled or not then goes on the ballot. An election is held whereby a majority of the voters can remove the politician from office before his/her term is up.

A primary election is an election that takes place before the main elections. The primary election narrows down the amount of people who are running for a specific place in office. An example being there are two democrat and two republican candidates running for president. There will be an election to remove one democrat and republican from the race.
