How many total years can a person serve as president in the US now?

They could (technically) serve 10 full years. They can be elected twice (thus serving 8 years) and get the other two years by being elected V.P. and the President dying almost immediately. So, serve the first two and then be elected twice.The law does not allow a person that has served as President for more then two years to be elected a second time."Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term. "Realistically, you will only see 8 years though. Thanks, I didn't know this before either!


What is the maximum amount of time one person can be president?

The maximum amount of time one person can be a US President is 10 years.The Twenty Second Amendment to the US Constitution states that:"No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once."So, if a person (the vice-president) takes the office of the President in the first or second year of the preceding President's term, they may only be elected to the office for one four year term. However, if they take the office of President in the third or fourth year of the term, they may then be elected for two four year terms, thus being able to hold the office for a total of ten years.
