Calling my fellow Connecticutensians

I just fled NYC for Ridgefield, Connecticut. I have no idea of CT politics, candidates, anything. Please feel free to bring me up to speed on what I need to know about the upcoming elections. I registered to vote when I registered my car last week, and I can certainly figure out where to vote. However, apart from Pres/VP, I have no idea who’s on the ballot or what their platforms are. Needing to come up to speed fairly quickly, I will appreciate the input of like-minded folks.
