Welcome to Connecticut on Ballotpedia!

Connecticut state hub.jpg

Connecticut, named after the Connecticut River, is known as "the Constitution State." Similar to Rhode Island, Connecticut does not have county government. Connecticut county governments were mostly eliminated in 1960. The eastern state shares a local form of government with the rest of New England called "the New England town."

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.
