Candidates’ Voter Guide: 2017

Before every local election for years, Westport’s League of Women Voters distributed a Voters’ Guide. Filled with biographies of candidates for every office — and, more importantly, their responses to very direct questions about key issues — they helped many Westporters decide who to vote for.

Back in the day, nearly every Westporter got those guides through the Westport News. Recently, they’ve been distributed with the Minuteman. Unfortunately, most of us have asked — with varying degrees of success — for that paper to stop littering our driveways.

Fortunately, the LWV Voters’ Guide is now online.

So if you want to know where the candidates for selectmen; the Boards of Education, Finance and Assessment Appeals; Planning and Zoning Commission, and the Zoning Board of Appeals, plus all 9 RTM districts, stand — as well as where to vote, get absentee ballots, even how to register — click here.

And — on November 7 — don’t forget to vote!

  1. Thank you!

  2. Why would the Westport News or WestportNow not include a voter information guide?

  3. You want to find out just how ‘non partisan’ The League of Women Voters is hit the “CONVICTED FELONS” button on their site.

      What’s your point? The LWV site also list “Voters with Disabilities” and “Military/Overseas”

  4. Sincerest thanks to the LWV for putting the guide together. This document is invaluable for our voters to quietly figure out their choices.
    Well done again!
