Delaware Supreme Court unanimously votes to keep early and absentee voting rights

In a unanimous vote, the Delaware Supreme Court has ruled that Delawareans will retain the right to early voting and permanent voting in all primary, general, and special elections. In February, a Superior Court judge issued a surprise ruling that struck down early voting and the state’s 14-year-old permanent absentee law. The permanent absentee law passed the General Assembly unanimously, however, Attorney General Jennings immediately moved to appeal the ruling. In a 5-0 court ruling on Friday, the Court found that then-Rep. Gerald Hocker, the plaintiff in the Superior Court case, and co-plaintiff Michael Mennella, lacked standing to bring the case.
