Notification Error Forces Delay of Delaware City Elections

Don Rush

The Delaware City elections will not take place today.

Officials say that they have found an error in the election notice.

At issue is language that say those 18 years and older with a valid identification can vote.

But the Wilmington News Journal reports that the Delaware City administration has since changed that requiring residents to register with state election officials.

Howard Sholl, a New Castle County elections official, told the paper that it was decided to postpone the election so that the results could not be challenged.
