REDDING, Conn. — Much of the political spotlight is focused on the heated ballot for the presidency between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.

But voters in Redding are also set to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8, in a number of races that are much closer to home.

Voters will be casting ballots in races for the U.S. Senate and House:

  • U.S. Senate: Democrat incumbent Richard Blumenthal of Greenwich vs. Republican challenger Dan Carter of Bethel vs. Libertarian challenger Richard Lion of Manchester vs. Green Party challenger Jeffery Russell of Glastonbury
  • 4th District U.S. House: Republican challenger John Shaban of Redding vs. Democrat incumbent Jim Himes of Greenwich

In the race for Redding's only State Senate seat (District 26), voters will choose between Republican incumbent Toni Boucher and Democrat challenger Carolanne Curry.

For the State House, there are two different districts in Redding (residents vote only in their district):

  • State House District 2: Democrat Raghib Allie-Brennan vs. Republican William Duff
  • State House District 135: Republican Adam Dunsby vs. Green Party candidate Bonnie Troy

In the State House District 2 race, Allie-Brennan and Duff are running to fill the seat vacated by Carter in his run for U.S. Senate. In the District 135 race, Dunsby and Troy are running to fill the seat vacated by Shaban in his run for U.S. House. Dunsby is the First Selectman of Easton, a position he intends to remain in if he wins.

In town elections, voters will choose one candidate each for Registrar of Voters and Judge of Probate:

  • Registrar of Voters: Democrat incumbent Joanne L. Perlman or Republican incumbent Amy Alcott
  • Judge of Probate: Democrat Sharon Wicks Dornfeld vs. Republican Daniel O'Grady

And for president and vice president, four teams are on the ballot:

  • Democrats Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine;
  • Republicans Donald Trump and Mike Pence
  • Libertarian Party's Gary Johnson and Bill Weld
  • Green Party's Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka
  • Or you can do a write-in candidate.
