With the results of the presidential race still in question, Wilton voted for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine by a wide margin. It was only the third time since Lyndon Johnson ran in 1964 that Wilton went with a Democrat for President. Barack Obama also won the town in 2008.
Electors also voted to send U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal and Congressman Jim Himes, both Democrats, back to Washington, D.C. Blumenthal won re-election across the state as did Himes across the 4th District.
