Delaware Pressured in Hunt for New Voting Machines
Delaware voters soon will cast their ballots on new voting machines.
But exactly when – and what those machines will look like – remains to be seen.
A state task force created last year to study the issue is still debating what bells and whistles the new voting machines should feature – four months after it was supposed to make a final recommendation to the Delaware General Assembly.
A coalition of civic groups is now urging the task force to complete its work soon so the Legislature can include funding for the new equipment in its next year's budget. Those groups include the state chapters of the American Civil Liberties Union, the League of Women Voters and the Sierra Club.
