Town Registrars of Voters Explain Redistricting

The 21st and 22nd state senatorial districts were affected in the redistricting, which takes place once a decade.

The following is a press release from the Monroe Registrars of Voters Office.

Every 10 years the State of Connecticut is mandated to update congressional and senatorial districts based on the latest census. Monroe's changes occurred in the 21st and 22nd state senatorial districts, which necessitated having to change the polling places where many Monroe voters have been used to voting.

The state reduced the 22nd district which contains Monroe Voting Districts 2 (Stepney Elementary) and 3 (Monroe Elementary) by over 1,900 voters and moved them into the 21st district. This change increased Monroe Voting Districts 1 (Fawn Hollow Elementary) and 4 (Masuk High School) by the same 1,900 voters.

Voting districts 1 and 4 were adjusted to make them as equal in the number of voters as possible. Districts 2 and 3 were also adjusted to minimize the difference between them.

All residents will receive postcards notifying them of their current polling place location, whether or not they have been moved. Voters can also use this website to verify their polling places. Since you are reading this on the Registrars of Voters homepage, you only have to look in the left sidebar and click on Voter Search. Fill out the information requested in the fields to find out to which polling place you have been assigned.

You may also click on District Street List to see which district your street is located in. Find your street name and look in the last column for your voting district (1, 2, 3, or 4). If your street is split due to the new district lines you need to look at the street number range and the letter in the column to the left. An "A" means All of that street number range is included. An "E" means that the Even side of the street is in the district listed in the last column, and an "O"
means that the Odd side of the street is in the listed district.
