2016 State Primary

The State Primary election will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 13. Polls in Dover will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

There are two separate ballots in a primary election: One for registered Republicans and one for registered Democrats.

Voters who are undeclared, and who wish to vote, can declare a party on the day of the primary and will receive that party's ballot.

Voters already registered as Democrat or Republican cannot change party affiliation until one day after the election.
