Delaware Primary Election Day Is Here

Delaware is among the last states to hold its primary on Sept. 13. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

One of the major races and interesting one is for state auditor. According to delawareonline.com, “Incumbent Kathy McGuiness is squaring off against lawyer and accountant Lydia York. McGuiness is the first statewide elected official to be charged with crimes and found guilty. She has denied any wrongdoing and has told voters she’s the victim of an unfair, political prosecution.”

“In a rare move, the Delaware Democratic Party isn’t supporting the incumbent McGuiness. It’s backing York, who has raised significantly more money than the auditor in a short period of time.”

Some other races interesting races are the District 1 & 2 elections. The delawareonline.com article contiunes and says “Two Wilmington lawmakers, Reps. Stephanie T. Bolden and Nnamdi Chukwuocha, have primary opponents, who entered the race this summer. These races can be seen as a response to these lawmakers’ records on issues like renter’s rights and abortion access.”

“Chukwuocha, representing District 1, is facing Shané Darby, currently a Wilmington city councilwoman. Bolden, who has represented District 2 for more than a decade, is being challenged by James Taylor, a state employee.”

“For many of these incumbents, this is the first time they’ve been challenged in years – if ever.”
