It is not the job of the media to promote candidates.
On November 8th — between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. – Hartford’s registered voters will have the opportunity to provide their own opinions about who they believe should hold office. Here is an image of a sample ballot, provided by Hartford Votes:
On this sample ballot, you can see where the instructions state to “vote for any six.” Sometimes this presents confusion. You do not need to vote for six City Council candidates. You can vote for zero, one, two, three, four, five, or six, but, you can not vote for more than six. The same holds true for Constables; you can vote any number up to, but not exceeding, four. If you want to just vote for Mayor, but for nothing else, you can do that as well.
We trust that Hartford voters will be making smart, informed decisions at the polls, and that they do not need a media outlet suggesting to them where their votes should go.
