Every 10 years, following the national Census, the State Legislature undertakes a “Redistricting” to rebalance the population of each district for State Senate and State House of Representatives. All of Bethel’s State Senate and State Representative Districts cover multiple towns. The Registrars of Voters have edited the Connecticut Voter Registration System to assign Bethel’s streets to their State Senate & State House districts. Bethel will still have 2 Senators and 2 Representatives. Bethel will still fall within House Districts 2 and 107. However, Bethel will no longer be in Senate Districts 24 & 26, but will be part of Districts 28 and 32.
