The following is from the New Canaan Office of the Registrar of Voters.
NEW CANAAN, Conn. Based on U.S. Census figures updated every 10 years, the town registrars have completed the redistricting of state Senate and Assembly Districts. Maps are available from the registrars' office defining the state Senate and Assembly Districts as they relate to New Canaan for use in elections from 2012 to 2021.
All voters will continue to vote in the same locations, be it New Canaan High School or Saxe Middle School, as they have in the past. While Assembly district lines will change, district lines for the state Senate remain unchanged.
State Senate lines will not change with Senate District 36 made up of the western half of the town, currently represented by Sen. L. Scott Frantz, with voting at New Canaan High School, as in the past. Senate District 26, made up of the eastern part of the town and currently represented by Sen. Toni Boucher, will vote at Saxe as in the past.
State Assembly Districts have changed. New Canaan will no longer contain any part of District 147, made up of the westernmost part of town and represented by Rep. William Tong. That part of town will now be included in District 125, currently represented by Rep. John Hetherington. A new local district will be created to accommodate the new part of District 142, represented by Rep. Lawrence Cafero of Norwalk, which includes the southeast section of New Canaan or the Silvermine and Hoyt Farm areas.
New Canaan will have three voting districts. District 1, part of Senate District 36 and Assembly District 125, will vote as a single district at New Canaan High. Parts of Senate District 26 and Assembly District 125 will now comprise the new voting District 2 and will vote at Saxe. Part of Senate District 26 and the new part of Assembly District 142 will also vote at Saxe and will be voting District 3.
Any questions should be directed to Registrars George Cody and Kathleen Redman at 203-594-3060.
