Poles on a magnet attract or repel because of the way the electrons line up. The electrons in the valence shells tend to line up on one side of the nucleus. The electrons have a negative charge and the nucleus has a positive charge. The negative charges in one magnet repel the negative charges in another magnet but attract the positive charges in another magnet.
