According to 2016 election night reporting from the Connecticut Secretary of the State, 76.94 percent of voters turned out to vote in the presidential election. Of those voters, 54.57 percent voted for Clinton.

In terms of military engagement, reports that there are 4,603 active duty personnel in Connecticut.
