October 3, 2022–The Delaware League of Women Voters’ online voter education resource, VOTE411.org, is a valuable tool for helping First State voters cast an informed ballot in November’s general election, when all 21 Senate seats and 41 House seats—the entire General Assembly—are up for reelection. Three executive offices are also on the ballot: attorney general, treasurer, and auditor of accounts. Altogether, 147 candidates are running, making it a crowded field.
Further complicating the election are two key changes: redistricting that has taken place since the last election and changes in voting options. Vote411de.org can help voters sort out these issues and more.
The nonpartisan, one-stop-shop resource provides simple tools that voters can access online to stay informed on the status of the elections and navigate the voting process before election day. Voters can read side-by-side comparisons of each candidate’s background and positions, register to vote, find their polling place, and other helpful election information.
Voters can also find their new district and polling place, as well as options for casting their ballot other than going to their polling places, namely early voting and absentee voting. Vote-by-mail may also be an option, pending a decision by the Delaware Supreme Court. The League of Women Voters, which was instrumental in helping make these options available to Delaware voters, will continue to advocate for expanded voting rights in Delaware.
“With the entire Delaware General Assembly up for re-election this year, your vote can really make an impact on the future of Delaware. Decisions on climate change, reproductive rights, education, and healthcare are on the ballot this year,” says Vote411 coordinator Jill Itzkowitz. “Go to Vote411.org to find out how to vote and learn about your candidate’s positions on important issues.”
