Electric charges have nothing to do with the orientation of the Earth's magnetic field, so the shifting of the Earth's magnetic poles wouldn't
change (as an example) the direction of current flow through a circuit, or the charge on an electron. Given that the poles tend to drift over time in
any case, even a dramatic shift would more than likely have minimal large-scale effects, other than some very confused migratory birds, and some
equally confused Boy Scouts.
