Referendum 2011

My first official election as a new citizen

I’m excited.

Out of the blue I received in the mail a ballot for my first official election as a citizen of my ancestral boot-shaped country.  The options are “Si” and “No” so the ballot is binary, each issue has been given it’s own ballot paper, and the election is apparently in June.  At this point I don’t know what the issues are as I need to translate the ballots, then research them so I can make an informed vote.

I wonder if this feeling I’m getting seeing this is similar to what newly minted US citizens feel when they get to vote for the first time?
