How Gen Z is changing politics
As you prepare to cast your vote in this upcoming election, you may have questions about how campaigns work in Connecticut. This hour, we learn about the State Elections Enforcement Commission which oversees voter fraud allegations and campaign finance. We'll also talk about America's youngest voters, Gen Z.
