In the Attachments section of the Information for Delaware Voters page you'll find They Represent You, an LWVNCC publication listing all elected officials from Delaware who hold federal, state, New Castle County, Wilmington, and Newark offices.
 
This document prints best on legal size paper. It is updated every two years following general elections; the 2019 edition is now available.
 
The LWVDE Lobby Handbook, available on that same page, is an excellent primer on how the Delaware government works, and how to effectively communicate your opinions to your elected officials.
