#美国地方选举# 哥伦比亚特区建州公投(美國美中報道)

#美国地方选举#你知道吗,华盛顿哥伦比亚特区不被视为是一个州。关于哥伦比亚特区是否应主张建州,特区居民就这个问题进行了多次辩论和投票。2016年,哥伦比亚特区议会(哥伦比亚特区的立法分支)批准了一场公投,向选民提出了这个问题。在2016年选举期间,哥伦比亚特区的选民进行了投票,来决定其地方政府是否要向国会请愿让华盛顿哥伦比亚特区成为第51个州。超过80%的选民想让哥伦比亚特区政府主张建州,公投因此获得通过。

哥伦比亚特区的这场公投通过之后,特区市议会开始向国会请愿建州,并得到了特区市长以及特区在国会的代表的支持。建州将为生活在美国首都哥伦比亚特区的70多万居民在众议院和参议院获得有投票权的代表。今年,众议院投票给予哥伦比亚特区州的地位,但参议院还没有对此进行表决。

#Local Elections in the US# Did you know? Washington D.C. is not considered a state in the United States. The question of whether or not DC should advocate to become a state is a question that DC residents have debated and voted on multiple times. In 2016, the Council of the District of Columbia (DC’s legislative branch) approved a referendum to go on the ballot to ask voters this very question. During the 2016 election, DC voters went to the polls to decide whether their local government should petition Congress to make Washington, DC the 51st state. The referendum passed, with more than 80% of voters wanting the DC government to advocate for their statehood.

After the passage of this DC referendum, the DC City Council began petitioning Congress for statehood, with support from the Mayor of DC as well as DC’s Representative to Congress. Statehood would offer voting representation in the House of Representatives and Senate for DC’s more than 700k residents in the nation’s capital. This year, the House of Representatives voted to grant statehood to the District of Columbia, but has still not received a vote in the Senate.
