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

  • House District: 143: Gail Lavielle, incumbent Republican, running unopposed
  • House District: 125: Republican incumbent Tom O'Dea,  vs. Hector L. Lopez of the Green Party

In local elections, voters will cast their ballots for Registrar of Voters for Carole Young-Kleinfeld, Democrat, or Annalisa Stravato Favarolo, Republican.
