Polling stations are HERE
Look up your polling station on this complete list of streets and districts.
Look up your voting registration HERE

What follows is meant to be an idiosyncratic aggregation of information about the candidates in Tuesday's municipal election, designed to forestall the diligent voter's complaint that he or she has no idea who is even running, let alone ever heard anything about them.  The candidates are listed alphabetically, with their position on the ballot indicated.  

Mayor. Sorry, too much to list, you're on your own here.  Google is your friend.
  • Brian Clark (1D, write-in)
  • Dan Drew (1A)
  • Sandra Russo-Driska (1B)
Common Council (vote for any 8). The Courant had an overview of the Republicans and the Democrats, the Press also had an overview of the Democrats and the Republicans. Some of the candidates submitted biographies, those are linked below.

  • Emmakristina Sveen (10B). Challenger
