SB 320 would allow registered voters to request a mail ballot before the election that may be returned either by mail or at a designated drop-off location. The option to vote by mail is just that: an option. It is an additional method Delawareans could use to vote, and will not replace other voting methods.
By passing a universal vote-by-mail option for 2022, Delaware will open a channel for young people, low-income communities, minorities, those without access to transportation or limited schedules, and those with high-risk health conditions to have their voices heard in the upcoming elections.
With the end of the legislative session looming and thousands of Delaware voters left with questions about how they can safely participate in the 2022 election, it is past time for Delaware lawmakers to allow permanent vote-by-mail.
Ask your Senators to pass SB 320 and make permanent, universal vote-by-mail available to all Delaware voters for the 2022 elections and beyond.
