RESULTS FROM PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY
Delaware Winner: Hillary Clinton
To see all results go to: http://elections.delaware.gov/results/html/stwres.shtml
Did you vote yesterday? Did you get out on a beautiful day here in Sussex County and push that X next to the candidate of your choice on the voting machine?
Not quite 30% of registered Democrats in Sussex County made it to the polls yesterday for the Delaware Presidential Primary. Close to 38% of registered Sussex County Republicans went out to vote. Again.....
In all of Delaware, 70% of registered Democrats did not vote in yesterday's primary.
If this holds in the November General Election, we could easily be dealing with President Trump as of January 20, 2017.
Some more numbers:
- Registered Voters in Sussex County, as of 4/1/2016:
Other Parties: 35,214
The numbers of registered Democrats and Republicans in Sussex County is extremely close, as can easily be seen.
We have to make the Democratic party in Sussex County attractive enough that some of those who are registered with other parties....or no party....to switch their affiliation.

There are more and more Democrats moving in to Sussex County.....and more in the coastal area of Sussex registering and getting involved. But, new to the area or not, we have to get out and vote! We can't sit home and think our vote doesn't matter. Please....do what you can to encourage your friends and neighbors to get registered and show up on Election Day.
