With a Canadian federal election called for October 14th, and US elections on November 4th, as a dual-national my autumn will be rich with democratic expression.
The US half of me votes in Monroe County, NY, which is the county where I last resided in the US (in 1966, no less). I’m in the 28th Congressional district, the 56th Senate district, the 133rd Assembly district, the 27th Legislative district and City Council Ward S. On my ballot I’ll be voting for:
- Federal Congressional Representative
- State Senator
- Member of the State Assembly
- County Court Judge
- Family Court Judge
- County Clerk
- County Legislator
Federal Senators in the US are elected to 6-year terms, and neither of the current Senators, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer, are up for re-election this fall.
My Canadian half, in the Charlottetown electoral district, will only have one choice to make, for Member of Parliament.
