After months of watching the many twists and turns of the presidential election campaign, Delaware voters will finally have a chance to voice their opinions on Tuesday, April 26.
Due to its modest size, Delaware is normally left out of the national conversation while nearby states Pennsylvania or Maryland attract far more attention. This year has not followed that pattern, however. Both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump held campaign events over the weekend to ignite their supporters. Trump held a rally in Harrington on Friday and Sanders visited Wilmington on Saturday. Hillary Clinton visited World Cafe Live at the Queen in downtown Wilmington on Monday morning.
Polls will be open on Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Only registered voters from participating parties are allowed to vote. (The deadline to register to vote in the presidential primary was April 2, while the deadline to change your affiliation was February 26.)
The last time the Department of Elections can issue an absentee ballot for this primary is Monday, April 25, 2016 at noon.
There’s been a lot of confusion surrounding recent primaries—people don’t know where they are supposed to vote, if they’re even registered to vote or what party they are allowed to vote for. The links below can answer most of your voter registration questions, and tell you which district you are registered in:
