will Steve and Mrs. Spew get their citizenship in time
for this election in late October?
I think not. These citizenship ceremonies apparently happen often in November. Getting to the test stage was far faster than I expected, but I am doubtful that the processing will proceed so quickly. Still, it is possible.
How would I vote? Well, as the Citizenship Test Guide told us all, I don't have to tell you. Besides, if you cannot figure it out from ye olde Semi-Spew ....
Oh, and if we miss it, that's ok. Given that the likely outcome is a minority government a shorter life span than the most recent minority governments, we will be at the ballot box before too long.
