11/5/2021 - Public Recanvass of 11/2/2021 Election

We have determined that four contests are within the 0.5% / 20-vote margin that requires a post-election review of ballots under CT General Statutes section 9-311a. Accordingly, we will be holding a public recanvass event on Tuesday, November 9th at 9am, which will be held at the Fairfield Senior Center. Candidates and party chairs have had written notice delivered to them. 

Those wishing to observe the recanvass are welcome to attend, but should be advised that only sworn election officials will be permitted to actively participate in the process. 

The recanvass will examine the ballots in districts 2, 6, and 9 for votes in the Representative Town Meeting contest; a fourth recanvass (for Town Plan and Zoning Commission Alternate) was declined by the eligible candidate.
