Ballot Access News

The Connecticut Working Families Party always runs nominees for Congress and state legislature in at least half the districts. In 2020, for an unexplained reason, the percentage of the vote for the WFP, in the districts in which it had nominees, was the lowest in history.

Its 2020 State Senate nominees, in the districts in which they ran, polled 2.44% of the vote.  In previous years, the State Senate percentages had been:  2002 3.02%; 2004 2.94%; 2006 4.24%; 2008 5.88%; 2010 3.83%; 2012 3.29%; 2014 5.67%; 2016 3.69%; 2018 2.58%.

Its 2020 State Representative nominees, in the districts in which they ran, polled 2.95%.  Previous years were:  2002 3.81%; 2004 3.46%; 2006 4.97%; 2008 6.29%; 2010 3.58%; 2012 4.31%; 2014 4.58%; 2016 5.00%; 2018 3.05%..

For U.S. House, the 2020 percentage was 2.70%. That was the lowest percentage ever, except that it had been lower in 2004 and 2006.  2004 was 1.14%; 2006 2.66%; 2008 5.24%; 2010 2.90%; 2012 4.38%; 2014 3.96%; 2016 5.81%; 2018 3.69%.
