Governor Carney’s Statement on Voting by Mail Legislation

WILMINGTON, Del. — Governor John Carney on Thursday issued the following statement on the General Assembly’s passage of House Bill 346, legislation sponsored by House Majority Leader Valerie Longhurst regarding voting by mail:

“My position on this issue has been simple and consistent. We should make it easier – not harder – for all Delawareans to exercise their fundamental right to vote and participate in our democratic process. That’s especially important this year as our state and country continue to grapple with the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic. This legislation will make sure that Delawareans can fairly and securely cast their ballots and have their voices heard.”
