House Election

In September, the state mailed absentee ballot applications to its more than 2 million registered voters, nearly 700,000 of whom requested ballots. Nearly 550,000 returned their ballots, as of the end of October.

On Election Day, the polls are open for in-person voters from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

State Significance

Democrats have dominated presidential elections in Connecticut for the last three decades, last losing in 1988. Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump by over 14 points in 2016 following Barack Obama running up 17- and 22-point margins of victory in 2012 and 2008, respectively.

In 2018, despite an entirely Democratic congressional delegation and a sitting Democratic governor, the GOP was nearly successful in winning the state's gubernatorial contest, with Republican Bob Stefanowski falling just three points short of Democrat Ned Lamont.

*Counties are colored red or blue when the % expected vote reporting reaches a set threshold. This threshold varies by state and is based on patterns of past vote reporting and expectations about how the vote will report this year.
