VOTER INFORMATION

 Voter Guides 2018

The League thanks all candidates who answered our Voter Guide questions. NOTE there was no voter guide for the 141st State House district because incumbent Terrie Wood (Republican) ran unopposed. Click to open the Voter Guide responses from the candidates for each district:

Norwalk Voting Districts / Polling Places

To find out which district you live in and where to vote, visit the Norwalk Registrar of Voters http://www.norwalkct.org/339/Registrar-of-Voters-Elections-Administra and follow the "Where Do I Vote?" link under FAQs; or call the Registrar's office at (203) 854-7996.

NOTE: Your polling place may change between even- and odd-numbered years. This is because the boundaries of our State Representative districts are different from the boundaries of our municipal Common Council districts. State/federal elections take place in even-numbered years, and municipal elections take place in odd-numbered years. To look up your State Representative, see http://www.norwalkct.org/1290/State-Reps-Senate-and-Congress
