The right to vote is a fundamental principle of our democracy. When more Americans can participate in our elections, the outcome better reflects who we are as a country. We work year-round at the state and local level to enact voting reforms that best increase turnout and help new communities participate in the process, making our elections more free, fair and accessible. - League of Women Voters
Importance of Voting...
A few more wise words
Delaware purchased new voting systems in 2018. The new machines were used for the first time in the school board elections in May 2019. After you mark your choices on the electronic screen, the new voting machines print a paper ballot as the ballot of record. It is very important to carefully review the paper ballot to make sure it reflects your true choices, before finalizing your vote. The paper ballot will be used for recounts when needed, and for routine post-election audits that verify machine accuracy.
View this video to see how to cast your vote using the new machines.
The League of Women Voters of Delaware created a series of civics videos now posted on YouTube, entitled, We’re the WE in "We the People". It is a series of videos on government for those who have never had a civics course and a brush-up course for those who have but need to be reminded why it matters.
It is composed of 2 groups of videos with 7 segments on the Federal Constitution and 3 on the Delaware Constitution. It was funded in part by Delaware Humanities.
Watch the videos to learn how your govenment functions and how important your vote is.
