It is the general New Britain Progressive editorial policy that the choice given by a candidate to voters about their party alignment on the official ballot that the voters actually voted on is that official’s political party. The New Britain Progressive will report this information. An elected official who was a candidate under more than one party is reported as a member of the party under which they received the greatest number of votes.

Of course, if a sitting elected official changes party alignment and is accepted into a new party or party caucus, the New Britain Progressive would report their new party alignment.
