On Tuesday, Nov. 8, registered Easton voters will vote for candidates for governor, the U.S. senate, secretary of the state, state treasurer, Connecticut’s fourth congressional district, State Senate District 28, and either House District 135 or House District 112.
Voting will take place at the Samuel Staples Elementary School Cafetorium from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The following candidates will be on the ballot (with links to their respective campaign sites if available):
Easton Registrar of Voters: David Smith (D) and Dori Wollen (R).
Note: The candidates running for Lieutenant Governor are Susan Bysiewicz (D), Laura Devlin (R), and Stewart “Chip” Beckett (I)

An altered Connecticut House of Representatives district map approved in November by the Bipartisan Reapportionment Commission of the Connecticut General Assembly has reshaped the composition of the 112th House District.
The reconfigured 112th District consists of Monroe and a portion of Trumbull and Easton. This redistricting means that over 3,500 residents from Easton will no longer be part of the 135th District, and Newtown will make up the entire 106th District.
Consequently, Easton residents “moving” to the 112th District will only be able to vote for legislators running for office in that district—and not in the 135th. Easton will have two state representatives when legislators get sworn in on Jan. 4, 2023.
