Updated June 03, 2022

A Delaware voter registration form can be submitted by any Delaware resident eighteen (18) years of age or older who wishes to vote in an upcoming local, state, or federal election. The State of Delaware provides an alternative online registration method for those wishing to complete the process on the computer. Voters who register using the registration form can send their forms by mail, email, or fax to their County’s Department of Elections Office. All first-time registrants must submit a photocopy of a piece of identification, such as a photo ID, a bill, a statement, a government check, or a paycheck. Registration forms and online registration submissions must be completed four (4) Saturdays before an election.
