Passive Voice


What is best way to stop using passive voice?

See example:

The candidate for the presidency would name his vice presidential running mate and when the votes were tallied the top two vote recipients would then become president and vice president.

It would be a terrible thing for your writing if you somehow learned to stop using the passive voice.  It is often correct and the best verb tense to use, as it is in your example sentence.
