In odd-numbered municipal elections, voters vote by Ward. There are four Wards, and each Ward elects two members of the Board of Aldermen. The aldermen are the only officials elected by Ward.

Due to 2012 State redistricting the register of voter’s office will no longer be using Sunnyside School or the Shelton Community Center as a voting location. The following are your voting locations: District 1 Elizabeth Shelton School, Congressional District 4, House District 113. Shelton Intermediate School has two different Congressional Districts.
