Current Delaware law allows individuals 18 and older, and those who will turn 18 before the next general election, to register to vote through the Division of Motor Vehicles. This act would allow 16 year olds to register to vote through the Division of Motor Vehicle at the time they first apply for their driver’s license. Such individuals, however, will not be allowed to vote unless they will turn 18 before the next general election.
