Delaware Senate Votes to Pass April Presidential Primary Legislation

The Delaware state Senate on Thursday, June 16, passed SB 89 by a 19-1 vote. The bill would move the First state's presidential primary from the first Tuesday in February to the fourth Tuesday in April; coinciding with primaries in neighboring Pennsylvania and when Governor Malloy signs the legislation in the Nutmeg state, Connecticut.

The bill will now move to the Delaware state House for consideration and will have to be moved through the lower chamber prior to the legislative session adjourning at the end of the month.
