A Reminder: Trumbull's New Voting Districts

By Bill Holden and Laurel Anderson

Voting districts in Trumbull were changed from seven to four by the Town Council in May so some voters may now be voting at different polling places. On Election Day, November 6, there will be polling places at Hillcrest School (District 1), St. Joseph’s High School (District 2), Madison Middle School (District 3) and Middlebrook School (District 4).

There are several ways to find out where you will be voting this year:

A postcard will be mailed to you in about two weeks stating your voting district and location. Our office will be in touch with voters via the reverse 9-1-1 system when the cards are mailed.

A voting district map is available on the town's website, www.trumbull-ct.gov and can be accessed from both the “Elections Administration” page or the “Community” page.

You may visit the CT Secretary of the State’s website, Elections and Voting information page at http://www.ct.gov/sots/cwp/view.asp?a=3&q=415810 and under the “Elections Information” column click on the “Where do I Vote” button.

Finally, please feel free to contact our Trumbull Elections Administration office at Town Hall at   203-452-5058 or 203-452-5059 to get your polling place information. 

As a reminder - polls are open on Election Day, Tuesday November 6 from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM. We are doing everything possible to make your experience at the polls on Election Day as easy and trouble-free as possible.

Sincerely,

Laurel Anderson

Trumbull Democratic Registrar of Voters

Trumbull Republican Registrar of Voters.

This redistricting fiasco brought to you by the same team Herbst and his henchman Holden that gave Trumbull such hits as "Losing $75,000 on Bolton" " Election Chaos for $8,000", and the biggest hit "Martha, Don't Bite that Dog" November 2013 can't come fast enough for Trumbull!!

Not sure why Christiano is in my district except that Republican Larry Cafero made it so. He was never in the 123rd

I feel sorry for Laurel who is new to her post. She will have to carry the burden of this ill conceived poorly thought out and badly implemented "redistricting". Yes, this is a Republican farce, done for purely political reasons and affirmed by the Republican Town Council (David Pia excepted) who could not even make one arguement in favor of this farce. (Wait we "save" $7,000 but that same Council blows $70,000 on the concert). Watch for reverse 911 calls, letters, and more as the Republicans, in panic mode, try to minimize the confusion.

We can only hope that the public's memory won't be quite so short this time.

Damned if we do and damed it we don't advise people of their redistricted polling places., in your eyes. Laurel is doing a great job. She and Barbara, my new assistant registrar, started within a few days of one another. Sandy, the Dem assistant registrar & I have each been helping our new counter-parts. IMO, they both are doing great and all four of us have been working together very well. Those who wish to continue to make a political issue out of the redistricting will do so. Those who wish to make things work for citizens (voters) will also do so. Those who just wish to make a political issue of this will have egg all over their faces after election day.

No Bill, you are the only one "damned" for your partisan and unnecessary redistricting done to reduce democracy in Trumbull and benefit your Republican buddies.

Bill, You are an intelligent guy who should understand the real issue. This is not about who is working hard (I am sure all of you will give your best efforts). This is not about what happens on election day. I personally hope it goes as smooth as possible. This is about how we do things and why, in other words, good government. Those that supported retaining a 7 district plan with modifications came well prepared, did their home work and defended their position with facts and logic. The Republicans who supported a 4 district plan could not defend their position. How could they? The four district plan impacted three thimes the number of voters (over 18,000 versues under 5,000). The four district plan created a "super" district whereas the 7 district plan keet 7 balanced and equal districts. The proponents of the 4 District plan could not refute the fact that the 7 district plan served Trumbull well for three decades, allowing voters plenty of choice and the ability to make change in political make-up when the voters felt change was needed. In other words, there was no reason to do what was done, no voter outcry for this change and no debate on the issue. We know what when on here and I wish one Republican had the guts to tell the truth. Tell the people this was done because you could, because the hierarchy of the Trumbull Republicans wanted it. Party before the people, might makes right. SAD.
