·8 min read

Updated 1:15 a.m. - CONNECTICUT — Polls are now closed in Connecticut for the 2020 presidential election and several important state races. Many voters have already cast absentee ballots due to the coronavirus pandemic and those are now being counted.

All eyes are on the White House race between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden. Neither Connecticut U.S. Senate seat is up for re-election in this cycle, but all five congressional seats are. All of Connecticut’s state Senate and House of Representative seats are up for election too.

Democrats hold majorities in both the state House and Senate. There are 22 Democratic legislators and 14 Republicans in the Senate and 91 Democrats to 60 Republicans in the House.

Connecticut's politics in 2021 will already be different regardless of the election results. Three of the four General Assembly caucus leaders didn’t seek re-election this year. House Republican Leader Themis Klarides and Senate Republican Leader Len Fasano announced earlier this year they wouldn’t seek re-election.

House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz announced in 2018 that the two-year term would be his last. He won re-election by a narrow margin in 2018.

Republicans made some gains in both chambers in 2016 and had evenly split the Senate with Democrats. However, 2018’s election shifted 12 seats in the House and five in the Senate from red to blue.

Below are the Connecticut State Senate and House races in Hartford County, as reported to the Secretary of the State's office. Projected winners are in bold type.
