It's Election Day, and that means today is your chance to elect the best champions for biking and walking in your town.
Elections will take place in all but four of Connecticut's 169 cities and towns, with the post of chief elected official at stake in 126 communities. That's a lot of potential for positive change.
The offices that are up for grabs today are the very ones that will -- or won't -- make your town a safer, better place to bike and walk.
Don't think your vote won't make a difference! Connecticut's local elections are routinely won by miniscule margins. Some municipal races have been won by fewer than five votes.
Even if you're not registered to vote yet, you can take care of that today at your town hall. Go vote. It matters!
