Voter Registration

In-Person Registration


Residents may register at Smyrna Town Hall (27 South Market Street Plaza) between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays until 14 days prior to the town election, at which time registration is closed. People who are properly registered to vote in statewide elections with the State Department of Elections and are otherwise qualified to vote in town elections are deemed registered voters under the town's voter registration ordinance.

Any person not identified as a registered voter on the list obtained from the State Department of Elections by the close of registration at 4:30 p.m. 14 days before the day of the election shall not be permitted to vote in that election.

Absentee Registration


Any person unable to register in person due to physical impairment or because of public or military duties may register by mail. Details for mail registration are available at the Town Office or under the absentee voting page on this website. The dates for absentee registration are the same as for all other registrations.


Online Registration


You may also utilize the Online Voter Registration Application on the State of Delaware website. Please use this function if this is a first-time registration or if you need to update any information that you may have on a previous registration that has already been processed (i.e., changes to your name, party affiliation, or address).

If You're Not Sure You're Registered


If you're not sure if you're registered to vote, please visit the State of Delaware Polling Place Locator. You will be asked to enter your first name, last name, and zip code.


After Registration


After you have registered to vote, you should receive your polling card in the mail within 2 to 3 weeks. If you do not receive your card, please contact the Kent County Department of Elections.
