Current Delaware Filings For Elected Office As Of 6/20/16

It’s that time of year again when the General Assembly winds down and the election season becomes the top priority in the state.  This is a list of filed candidates for either statewide office or the General Assembly.  Blue means there will be a Democrat Primary while Red means there will be a Republican Primary.  If a district or office is in bold, that means there will be a contest for that office on Election Day.

Delaware Election 2016: Current Filings For State Rep, State Senator, & School Board Candidates

Election day is less than eight and a half months away. But there will be other stuff going on before that. Referendums, School Board Elections, final candidacy filings for State Representative, and State Senator, and Primaries. Below is every single candidate who filed for President, Congress, Lieutenant Governor, State Senator, State Representative, and School Board elections. Important dates are in purple, candidates who will face a challenger in the primary or a school board election are in green, and in the school boards section if no one has filed for a seat it is in red.  The biggest race is for Lieutenant Governor in Delaware.  No Republicans want to run?

Don’t see some of your favorites or those you love to hate on here?  Don’t worry!  For the State Representative, State Senator, and School Board positions, many more will file including the majority of the incumbents.  All 41 of the State Representatives are up for re-election.  If there are any candidates with stars all around their name, I really want someone to run against them.  Democrat, Republican, Independent, Green, Libertarian, it doesn’t matter.  Just run!  One of the major Presidential candidates hasn’t filed yet in Delaware!  Which one?

As for why there is no Delaware Governor listing, none of the candidates have officially filed yet!
