House Bill 346, an expansion of vote-by-mail passed in both the State House and Senate and is on its way to Governor Carney’s desk for a signature. The bill allows Delawareans to vote by mail in all outstanding 2020 elections because of the coronavirus pandemic. If residents chose to vote by mail, they will not incur postage costs. Federal funds from the CARES act will help the Department of Elections pay for vote-by-mail expansion. The measure does not forbid anyone from casting an in-person ballet. All usual polling places will be open. Don’t forget, Delaware’s presidential primary is on July 7th. All registered Democrats and Republicans received Absentee Ballot Applications in the mail. To get your actual ballot, you must fill out the application. When you are filling it out, select ‘I am sick, or temporarily or permanently physically disabled’ as the reason you are voting by absentee ballot.
