Election 2018: Ridgefield voters select Stefanowski over Lamont (unofficial)
Republican Bob Stefanowski has appeared to have narrowly won Ridgefield over Democrat Ned Lamont in the state governor's race, early returns from the town's three voting districts show. The statewide result is still undecided.
Stefanowski received 5,638 votes in Ridgefield on Election Day, barely edging out Lamont's 5,602 tallies. These results do not include more than 1,400 absentee ballots.

Democrats won in Ridgefield for other races including secretary of the state, treasurer, comptroller, and attorney general.
Election 2018 drew big crowds to Ridgefield's three polling stations Tuesday, Nov. 6, as voters choose between 32 candidates for state offices and faced 12 ballot questions.
