Podcast: Election Day Tutorial with Kathleen Corbet

This week on 0684-Radi0, our free weekly podcast (subscribe here in the iTunes Store), we talk to Kathleen Corbet, a member of the League of Women Voters of New Canaan, about the number of candidates running for local office this year, how they’re elected to their various seats, what the ballot itself looks like (a sample is embedded below as a PDF) and recent changes to New Canaan’s Charter. Here’s a FAQ from the League:

How many candidates can I vote for? For First Selectman, you can choose 1. For Selectman, you can choose 1. 

For Town Council, you can choose any number up to 6. You don’t have to choose 6; in other words, there is no penalty for voting for fewer than 6.
