Connecticut’s Electoral Maps (CT-1)

Connecticut Local Politics did political junkies in the Nutmeg State a great service by mapping the state’s electoral results in 2006 and 2008. Using the site’s old maps, I’ve updated them to reflect the 2010 returns. Here’s the first congressional district, in which Democratic incumbent John Larson beat Republican challenger Ann Brickley 61 to 37 percent, according to the Associated Press. I used the AP’s tallies for this map. (Note: Brickley won Torrington by 10.5 percent, making that town a darker shade of red — just barely.)

Here’s the 2006 map from CT Local Politics.

I’ll try to do the congressional districts, senatorial race, and governor’s race. Next up, the second congressional district. Stay tuned.
