Here's a Copy of Clinton's November Ballot

Election Day, November 6 is tomorrow. Here's how you can stay on top of who's on the ballot, where to vote, and the questions on the ballot for Clinton voters only.

 

Attached to this article is a copy of the ballot that will be used by Clinton voters on November 6, Election Day 2012.

In addition to a listing of the candidates and their offices, there are two charter revision questions for Clinton voters only.

Even though the state of Connecticut has a Democratic governor, the state Republican party won their bid to have Republican candidate names listed at the top of the ballot.

On Monday, November 5, anyone who became of age, citizenship or changed residence since October 30 can register to vote. To register, go to the Clinton Town Clerk's office at Andrews Memorial Town Hall. The office is open until 4pm.

If you need an absentee ballot, they are available at the town's clerk's office.

All Clinton voters vote in one location: Andrews Memorial Town Hall.

For more details, look to the town's website, or the state's voter website.

This was just another blatant example of political shenanigans. I'm so glad the court was able to take up this matter in time to prevent Denise Merrill from denying the Republicans the top billing that is rightfully theirs in accordance with state law. The Republicans had 20,000 more votes than the Democrats in the last election. State law says that the party with the most votes gets top billing in the next election. Simple. No ifs, ands or buts. Merrill can't claim ignorance on this one. Pure political shenanigans.

Does it really matter whose party is first on the ballot? Hopefully, the person voting can read and will find the name they're looking for before filling in the circle.

Actually it does . We are a nation governed by the rule of law and it is important in a free democratic republic to abide by the rule of law in matters great and small, that is how we maintain a free, equitable and peaceful society. State law requires that the party that received the most votes be put at the top of the ballot and that law, on principle , should be respected, upheld and enforced. If next time the numbers swing the other way so be it. All persons responsible for complying with thie state ballot law should be reasonable and mature enough to put their own personal political opinions and affiliations aside and carry out their civic responsibilities with honor and respect for the laws of our state and their fellow citizens.

What are the advantages/disadvantages to being on more than one affiliation row, i.e. one candidate under both Republican and Independent?
