DOVER, Del. (AP) - Proposals to allow early voting and same-day registration have passed their first hurdles in Delaware's legislature.
One of the bills released after a House committee hearing Wednesday establishes in-person early voting, starting on Jan. 1, 2022. The bill would allow registered voters to cast ballots at least 10 days before an election in one or more locations in each county and the city of Wilmington.
Another bill that was released from the Democrat-led committee allows for same-day registration for primary, special and general elections.
The committee also voted to release a Senate-approved bill that would have Delaware join other states wanting to pool their Electoral College votes for the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote. Currently, Delaware's Electoral College votes go to winner of the state's popular vote.
