Commissioner's Letter

Voting is a privilege and a right, and the Department of Elections is committed to ensuring that all qualified Delawareans are afforded the opportunity to securely and conveniently register to vote, update their voter registration, participate in elections in which they are eligible to vote, and have easy access to the wealth of information available about voting and elections in Delaware.

Delaware is proud to be a national leader in offering the highest quality experience to our voters. We are now also proud to introduce a modernized and enhanced voting system to our State. Our new voting machines provide an experience familiar to the voters, and now also include a paper ballot backup. These improvements will allow Delaware voters to be confident their votes are cast securely and accurately. Electronic poll books will speed check-in at polling places, and greatly enhance our ability to update voting history. Additional enhancements including early voting will be introduced in the coming years. It's an exciting time to be a Delaware voter!

Feel free to reach out to our office with any questions or if we may assist you in any way in exercising your right to vote. We're here to help!

Best regards,

Anthony Albence
State Election Commissioner
