Election Day on Tuesday, November 4th

Election Day on Tuesday, November 4th

By Bettina Thiel – Woodbridge Town News Correspondent

Federal and state elections are coming up on Tuesday, November 4. There are now two voting districts for Woodbridge, but both vote in the same location, the Center Gym, 4 Meetinghouse Lane. Election workers will be present to direct voters if they are not sure which district they belong to. Hours for the polls are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Voting District 1

The federal and state offices that residents of the two districts are voting for overlap except for that of state senator. Voting District 1, which encompasses the majority of Woodbridge residents, votes for Senatorial District 17. That seat is currently held by State Senator Joseph Crisco, a Democrat. He is being cross-endorsed by the Working Families Party. Crisco is being challenged by Philip Tripp of Ansonia. Tripp is being cross endorsed by the Independent Party. Both their names will appear twice on the ballot, but voters can only check off one name once.

Voting District 2

Voting District 2 is part of Senatorial District 14. The seat is currently held by Gayle Slossberg of Milford, a Democrat. She is being challenged by Matt Gaynor. Gaynor is being cross-endorsed by the Independent Party.

In addition, voters get to answer the question whether or not to make it easier to vote by absentee ballot. ”Shall the Constitution of the State be amended to remove restrictions concerning absentee ballots and to permit a person to vote without appearing at a polling place on the day of an election?”

Traffic at the Center Building will be one way on Election Day. Voters can enter from Meetinghouse Lane, and then exit onto Center Road.
