Just for the sake of reference, here are the maps of the 2005 municipal election, showing both control of town councils/board of selectmen (or whatever the legislative body of a municipality is called) and control of the town’s “top office,” be that a mayor, first selectman or something else. In some cases, the “top office” is not directly elected, but is elected by the council. This is true in Enfield and New London, for instance.
A note: Waterbury is purple (for third party) on the “top office” map because Michael Jarjura was not the nominee of the Democratic Party, despite remaining a Democrat.
“Top Office” by party – 2005
How will these maps change tomorrow? Will we see more red? More blue? Or will things stay by and large the same? My own suspicion is that there’s going to be a bit more red. I don’t have anything specific informing that guess, but there you go.
