The 2018 election is around the corner. The men and women we choose for jobs like governor, US senator and congressman, and state senator, representative, comptroller and attorney general will make decisions in Washington and Hartford that impact all of our lives in Westport.
News comes at us from countless sources. But how do we figure out what’s real or fake? Meaningful or fluff? How do we make informed decisions?
Ella Berg wants to help.
The Staples High School junior spent 6 months researching and creating an online election primer. It offers links on registration and voting, plus short, factual descriptions of the positions of candidates on this year’s ballot.
All information was taken from campaign websites and candidates’ social media pages. It’s easily accessible, and completely non-partisan.
The League of Women Voters always produces an informative guide too, of course. But theirs is not out yet.
So click here to get started with Ella’s.
And — on November 6 — make the most informed choices you can.
