Saturday, August 11th is the last day for unregistered citizens to register to vote before the Thursday, September 6th Primary. Citizens who are already registered do not have to re-register.
The quickest and easiest way to register to vote is via Delaware’s IVOTE system. This system is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the exception of occasional brief periods for system maintenance. In order to be eligible to vote in the Primary you must be registered as a Democrat to vote in the Democratic Primary or as a Republican to vote in the Republican Primary. Folks registering without designating a party or with another party will not be able to vote in the September Primary. Citizens who are already registered without a party affiliation or in another political party can apply to change their party affiliation, however the change will not be effective until after the September 6th Primary.
Another way to register is to print a form, complete it and mail it to the Department of Election office in your county. In order to be eligible to vote in the Primary, the envelope containing the Voter Registration Application must be postmarked on or before August 11th.
Delaware’s Election Offices in each county will be open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 11th for those who want to register in-person. The addresses are listed below.
