Voting in this year's municipal election takes place on Tuesday, November 5.
You can cast your ballot between 6:00 am and 8:00 pm in Weston Middle School's old gym. Park around back, and please bring identification.
Six of the nine offices on the ballot are uncontested, including First Selectman, Selectmen, Board of Finance, Board of Education, Planning & Zoning Commission, and an alternate member of the Zoning Board of Appeals.
A seat on the Police Commission is up for grabs. This is the body that oversees the police department. This is the body you turn to when you are concerned about speed limits, enforcement, stop signs, and related matters.
A seat on the Zoning Board of Appeals is in play. This is where you go when you believe you have received an unfair ruling from P&Z.
A seat on the Board of Assessment Appeals is contested. This is where you go when you believe you have suffered an unfair property tax assessment.
Over the past few weeks, we reached out to the candidates for insight to share with you. Many responded, in one form or another, to our request to answer three basic questions:
Why are you running?
What is on the table? (Opportunities and challenges they see ahead.)
What do you bring to the table?
Some answered with a written statement, some accepted our offer of an interview. A few didn't respond. You will find links to interviews, statements, or bios in the candidate list below. The offices and candidates are listed in the order they appear on the ballot.
For more information about registration, curbside voting and the like, please see our October 15 article. The image at the top of this page is a mockup of both sides of the ballot. On a desktop computer, you can click on it to see it larger. (You can touch to open it on a phone, but we doubt it will be much larger.)
For additional information, the League of Women Voters also has an online voters guide, available here.
