A Message to Delaware Voters

Your vote this fall is important to Delaware! We have a chance to win key elections this year but we need your help. We have several races where you can make a difference, including making sure we elect a Democratic Attorney General committed to criminal justice reform and a Democratic State Treasurer who will prioritize Main Street over Wall Street. We also must maintain and grow our narrow one-seat majority in the State Senate. And we must keep our Congressional delegation blue, as the Republican nominees for the U.S. House and Senate are dangerous extremists loyal to President Trump. For more information about these elections, please visit www.deldems.org.

Even if you voted from abroad in the past, if you haven't yet requested your ballot this year, you still need to do so to make sure you can vote. Just go to votefromabroad.org, fill in the Federal request form, print, sign and send it in to your local election office here in Delaware.

On behalf of the Delaware Democratic Party I thank you for your commitment to voting!

Democratically yours,
Erik Raser-Schramm
Chairman, Delaware Democratic Party


Your deadlines are coming up. Don't forget:

REGISTER to vote from abroad by Monday, October 22. Your registration form will also request your ballot and may be sent by email, fax or postal mail. We recommend sending your request form by email or fax, and having your ballot delivered to you by email.


REQUEST your overseas absentee ballot by email/online or fax by Monday, November 5, 12 noon EST. Request to receive your ballot by postal mail by Friday, November 2. You may send your request form by email, fax, postal mail, or online using Vote Delaware system at ivote.de.gov. We recommend sending your request form by email, fax or online, and having your ballot delivered to you by email. Due to delivery time we don't recommend having your ballot delivered to you by post.


RETURN your ballot to your local election office by email or fax by Tuesday, November 6, 8 pm EST.


All overseas voters may vote in elections for federal offices (US House and US Senate races). Overseas voters who indicate they “intend to return” may also vote in Delaware state elections.

Note: When you fill in your ballot request form, be aware that selecting “I intend to return” rather than “my return is uncertain” may contribute towards establishing yourself as a tax resident in your voting state. Because the legal requirements to establish "residence" or "domicile" for tax purposes are determined by state law and the specific facts of your life, before you note that you intend to return on your form you may consider seeking advice on these matters from your tax professional.
