TRUMBULL — Many of the town’s voters will find themselves voting in a new district — and possibly a new polling place — during the local elections that take place Nov. 2.

The changes come after the town council voted last August to go from four voting districts to seven. Since 2012, the council has consisted of four districts, with District 4 having six representatives and the other three districts with five each. The council has a 16-5 Democratic majority. From 2015 to 2017, Republicans had a 17-4 edge.

Under the new district plan, each district will have three representatives and no party can have more than a 14-7 majority.

The new districts meant a change to some polling places. Here is a list of the districts and their respective polling places:

 District 1 votes at Daniels Farm Elementary School, 710 Daniels Farm Road;

 District 2 votes at Booth Hill Elementary School, 545 Booth Hill Road;

 District 3 votes at Tashua Elementary School, 401 Stonehouse Road;

 District 4 votes at Jane Ryan Elementary School, 190 Park Lane;

 District 5 votes at Middlebrook Elementary School, 220 Middlebrooks Ave.;

 District 6 votes at Madison Middle School, 4630 Madison Ave.;
