Voting Made Easier in Delaware

Posted on 09/30/22 by The AARP Bulletin

Casting a ballot in the Tuesday, Nov. 8, election is simpler than ever under new laws that AARP Delaware strongly supported.  

As of last year, voters are registered automatically at the Division of Motor Vehicles when they get a driver’s license. 

Same-day registration is available under a 2022 law. A recent court ruling striking down new no-excuse mail-in balloting is on appeal before the state Supreme Court.

Voters can still apply online or by mail for an absentee ballot. The ballots can be returned to a local election office or by mail. 

Early voting is allowed in person, from Oct. 28 to Nov. 6.

In the 2020 election, 58 percent of likely voters in the state were 50 and older, the survey AP VoteCast found.
