Welcome to Connecticut on Ballotpedia!


Connecticut, named after the Connecticut River, is known as the "Constitution State." Unlike all but one other 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. The state is divided into 169 towns, which serve as the fundamental political jurisdictions. Currently, Connecticut has two Democratic members of the U.S. Senate, a total of five Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 151 members of the Connecticut House of Representatives and 36 members of the Connecticut State Senate. As of September 2013, Connecticut is one of 13 Democratic state government trifectas.
