House Committee Hearing on Election Reform (that we oppose)

June 15 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

Hello from the Delaware Election Integrity Task Force, a grassroots group of concerned citizens working to ensure our elections are fair and your vote counts.

The bills will be heard in Legislative Hall this Wednesday, June 15th at 11:30 am:

SB 320 Mail-in Ballots:  https://legis.delaware.gov/BillDetail?LegislationId=129685

HB 25 Same day Registration:  https://legis.delaware.gov/BillDetail?LegislationId=48205

 

Register to comment at these virtual hearings.  We don’t know if showing up in person is warranted given that the hearing is virtual, but we are open to suggestions.  The Task Force has registered to comment.

To register for Committee hearings to comment in general: https://legis.delaware.gov/CommitteeMeetings

To register to comment on these bills in particular on June 15th: https://legis.delaware.gov/MeetingNotice?committeeMeetingId=32873

Our understanding of the current status of these two bills is the following: HB 25 has passed the House; SB 320 will likely be voted out of committee on Wednesday June 15, will likely be voted on by the Senate on Thursday June 16, will likely go to the House Committee on Wednesday June 22, then go to the floor of the House for a vote next Thursday June 23.   If they pass, they will then go to the Governor for his signature.

As you may know, DEGOP Chair Jane Brady along with the Public Interest Legal Foundation, filed suit against the Delaware Department of Elections earlier this year, arguing that Permanent Early Voting and Permanent Absentee Voting violated the State Constitution.  The expectation is that, should one or both of the above bills pass and are signed into law, the lawsuit would be amended to include these provisions as well.
