Saturday is the deadline to register for July 7’s presidential primary
Delaware has a closed primary, meaning Democrats can only vote for Democrats and Republicans can only vote Republicans. Those registered with other parties cannot vote in this election.
The deadline for registered voters to switch parties has now passed, so those who are eligible to cast ballots but are affiliated with a third party are out of luck.
Individuals hoping to sign up to participate in the presidential primary can do so by visiting ivote.de.gov or calling their county Department of Elections. They must present identification with proof of address when doing so.
Originally slated for April 28, the election was moved to June 2 and then to July 7 because of COVID-19.
It’s no longer a mystery who the main candidates for November’s presidential election will be, with President Donald Trump leading the Republican Party ticket and former Vice President Joe Biden set to helm the Democratic Party’s bid. All other contenders dropped out by mid-April, and Mr. Biden clinched a majority of his party’s delegates this month with victories in several state primary contests.
Had Delaware not pushed its election back, it’s possible the First State could have put its favorite son over the top, in fact.
Despite the outcome being already decided, voters here will have a few (nominal) choices: Democrats can pick between Mr. Biden and Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, while Republicans have the option of President Trump or California businessman Rocky De La Fuente, a perennial candidate.
