The form municipal candidates complete when seeking office in the state of Connecticut (SEEC Form 1 – Registration by Candidate) was revised, and is receiving rave reviews from critics and candidates alike, according to Business of Government Magazine.
In September of 2016, the State of Connecticut Elections Enforcement Commission in association with the Connecticut Secretary of the State unveiled the revised form.
The revision includes going from 27 lines to 28 lines (Municipality location was added) and slightly changing the type setting. “We hope by adding a line that more people will seek office, and that the form has more clarity,” said Denise Merrill, Connecticut’s Secretary of State.
Here are some of the reviews:
“By adding a line this form is now the rarest of achievements. Candidates will love it!” – Government Forms Magazine
“The State of Connecticut out did themselves this time with these revisions. A well put together form!” – Form of the Month Club
“It is four pages including a ‘this page left blank on purpose’ page. A bureaucrats dream!” – Wall Street Journal
“New font? Check? More lines? Check. Form clarity? Check. I’ve always loved forms and the concept of new and improved. Put it together and this is a win-win for everybody.” – Dave Preleski (D) District 2, Bristol, CT, USA
