The Wilton League of Women Voters extends thanks to all the candidates who stepped up to serve our community.  We also thank our tireless Registrars and poll workers who are committed to ensuring a smooth Election Day.

Voter turnout was strong in Wilton.  67% of registered voters exercised their right to cast their ballot, either in person or by absentee ballot.  Civic engagement clearly matters here.

We are pleased that the Early Voting ballot referendum passed with more than a two-to-one margin in Wilton and by 59% - 41% statewide.  This referendum paves the way for the new State Assembly to pass legislation enabling early voting in Connecticut.  You can find more news on this, including next steps, here.

Finally the Wilton League of Women Voters congratulates the winning candidates and looks forward to working with our newly elected legislators and other officials in communicating timely information about issues and initiatives facing our town and state.

Election Results for November 8, 2022 can be found here.

The Candidate Debates will be held on October 25, 2022 in the Brubeck Room of the Wilton Library and are co-sponsored by the Wilton Library as well as Good Morning Wilton.

The candidates running for State Representative will start their debate at 7:00 pm; and those running for State Senate will follow after a short break.

In both debates, sixty minutes will be allotted to constituent questions, with additional time for brief introductory and closing remarks.  Both debates will follow a modified town hall format under the LWV cumulative time guidelines.  Both debates will be led by an out-of-town moderator trained by the state League of Women Voters.

Each candidate will have 30 seconds to introduce themselves.

Thereafter we will move into questions, with an initial kickoff question presented by the Wilton LWV and subsequent questions submitted by constituents, either in advance or from the floor.  Constituents are invited to submit questions in advance to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , or to submit questions live from the audience in the Brubeck Room.  All questions must include the full name of the constituent posing the question; only one question will be submitted per email or index card; and all questions must be applicable to all candidates and pertinent to state-level issues (questions targeted at one specific candidate will not be accepted).  All questions will be screened for legibility, duplication, and may be combined or condensed.  The moderator will determine the first candidate to respond to the first question by lot, and rotate between candidates thereafter.

At the close of the hour of questions, each candidate will have up to 90 seconds for closing remarks.

In addition to the live audience, both debates will also be livestreamed and recorded.  They will be viewable live in real time on .  In addition, they will be recorded for later viewing at , , and elsewhere as available.
