What is your reason for voting? Ending racist policies, limiting government overreach, stopping police militarization? Ensuring community investment, funding education, protecting free speech?
There are so many important reasons to make sure your vote is part of every election this year, including the presidential primary. Your vote counts. Your rights depend on it.
Delaware’s presidential primary will now take place on July 7; but this is the last week to register to vote in the primary if you haven’t yet. You must be registered to vote with an affiliated party by this Saturday, June 13!
Registration is easy and only takes only a few minutes, and it’s more important than ever to make sure your voice is heard by casting your ballot in all of our elections.

Delaware’s primary is closed, meaning that to help select a party’s nominee, you must be a member of an affiliated party. If you choose to register as a non-affiliated voter, you won’t be able to participate in the presidential primary. You have the option to change your party affiliation at any time, so if it’s important to you to be non-affiliated and vote in the presidential primary, we suggest registering with a party, voting, then switching your registration when the primaries are over.
Because of COVID-19, it is often safer to cast your vote from home. Fortunately, Delaware has expanded absentee ballot access so that any Delawarean can request one for the presidential primary. Once you are registered to vote, request an absentee ballot by filling out the application form.
Just like registration, applying for an absentee ballot takes mere minutes and is the difference between having the security and the extra decision-making time of voting by mail. To learn more about voting absentee for the presidential primary, click here.
For many who have a felony conviction: you can still vote, as long as you have completed your sentence. It is vital that those who have experience in our justice system make their voices heard.
