Delaware’s House lawmakers have passed House Bill 302 on an 11-10 vote.

The bill eliminates each county’s board of elections and centralizes the operations into a single, state-wide Board of Elections.

Local lawmakers have been against the bill, saying that it takes power away from Sussex County and gives it to those in Wilmington.  Senators Hocker, Lopez, Pettyjohn, Simpson and Venables all voted against the measure.
