Welcome to Connecticut on Ballotpedia!


Connecticut, named after the Connecticut River, is known as "the Constitution State." Unlike all but one other U.S. state (Rhode Island), Connecticut does not have county government. Connecticut county governments were mostly eliminated in 1960, with the exception of sheriffs elected in each county. Connecticut shares a local form of government with the rest of New England called "the New England town." Connecticut is divided into 169 towns, which serve as the fundamental political jurisdictions.

Connecticut has two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of five members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 151 members of the House of Representatives and 36 members of the State Senate.
