Lottery on ballot order on Thursday morning

If you’re looking forward to this November’s municipal elections and want to know who will be where on the ballot, then tomorrow is a key day.

In accordance with Connecticut State Statue Sections 9-253 and 9-453r, the town’s Registrars of Voters will hold a public lottery for multiple-opening offices to determine horizontal order of names within a row on the election ballot, for the Nov. 5 municipal election.

The lottery will take place today, Aug. 22, in the Registrars of Voters office at 10 a.m.

Greenwich faces a full slate this year. First Selectman Peter Tesei is running for a fourth term for Greenwich’s top elected office against Democrat Stephanie Paulmeno. Incumbent Selectmen David Theis and Drew Marzullo will also be seeking reelection this year. Under Greenwich law, the top three finishers of the four candidates running will be on the board for a two-year term.

There is also a full slate of candidates for the Board of Estimate and Taxation, which contains six members from each the Republican and Democratic parties. There will also be competitive elections for both parties for the Board of Education. Last month the Greenwich Republican Town Committee nominated board newcomers Peter Bernstein and Brian Peldunas over incumbent member Peter Sherr. However, Mr. Sherr, through a petition drive, was able to get enough signatures to be on the ballot as a Republican as well.

Democrats too have three candidates running for the party’s two open spots. The Democratic Town Committee has given its endorsement to Samarpana Tamm and Debbie Appelbaum and they will be joined on the ballot by Laura Erickson, who began a petition drive after the nominating caucus. Ms. Erickson got enough signatures to run either as an independent or as a Democrat and chose to run on the party’s line.
