Federal Election CommissionCould America learn something about federal elections from its northern neighbour?

It came as a surprise to me in 2008 that the basic eligibility requirements for President of the United States, which are so carefully outlined in the Constitution that created the same office, aren’t verified in the most basic way by the Federal Election Commission — the commission charged with faithfully executing the federal electoral laws in support of the Constitution.

It is especially surprising to me that Americans don’t require such basic verification, given that the President of the United States is the highest office of the world’s most powerful national economy and military force in the world.

The constitutional requirements for a candidate for President of the United States are:

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

However, from the Federal Election Commission’s Candidate Registration Toolkit, none of the “Essential” forms even mention citizenship, let alone ¬†an oath or affirmation of eligibility for office.

Contrast that with page 5 of Canada’s Nomination Paper of a Candidate at a Federal Election or By-election:

I, the undersigned, the nominee in this Nomination Paper, do swear or solemnly affirm that:

2. I am a Canadian citizen at least 18 years of age on election day;

A Canadian citizen who knows the candidate is then required to solemnly swear or affirm that he/she knows the candidate.
