Comparing How We Elect Our Leaders in North America

By Robin Loving

We are creatures of habit, and, as such, it would be easy to assume that how leaders are elected is the way it happens wherever we are used to voting. As it turns out, however, there are big differences between elections in the US, Canada, and Mexico. David Burton will compare those systems at Rotary on Tuesday, January 9 at Hotel Misión. The presentation will be free and in English.

“There are similarities and differences in the political structures of each of these three countries,” said Burton, whose presentation will cover election laws, political party systems, voter registration, administration of elections, voter registration, election financing, the timing and the length of elections, campaigning styles, cultural differences, and more.

Burton is a Canadian from Ottawa, Canada, who has followed Canadian, US, and Mexican federal politics for many years. He has been a voting station officer in Canada several times, responsible for ensuring that voting procedures were properly carried out.

Rotary is where neighbors, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change. For more information, contact President Fred Collins at presidentmidday@berkleyline.com, and see RotarySMAMidday.org.
