RED CLAY CONSOLIDATED SCHOOL DISTRICT
District “C” expires 2022 –
Stephanie Hansen leads looks to big for John Marino to overtake ! Loophole in the law allowed 16 year-olds to vote in Special Elections! Law has been on the books since 2010. Delaware GOP Officials asleep at the wheel! Marino’s team found out a bit late whereas Hansen team played the card! Hansen’s lead is big and odds are the 16 year-old factor wouldn’t have made a difference!
Election official is a good guy and the law is correct!
You know we see a bunch of bull shit divide over Trump’s victory and I for one say, it is what it is so given Hansen the respect! I hope she can help put an end to Delaware’s death spiral but she has a lot of political payback owed to others.
I enjoyed hanging out on Facebook with the Marino crew who did a great job! Marino didn’t lose! Delaware did!
I am sure they’ll be some public backlash about 16 year-olds being allowed to vote in this Special Election!
I am still holding to my prediction John Marino will still win the Special Election in the 10th Senate District. However, GOP leadership caught off guard with issue of 16 year-olds be able to vote! Yes !!!!!!!! Loophole in the law would allow 16 year-olds pre-registered at time of getting their driver’s licences!
Delaware GOP leadership and John Marino’s campaign team jump into action and phone tree was lit-up to get all GOP 16 year-olds out to vote before 8:00 p.m.
Marino’s loss would me major shakeup in Delaware GOP leadership! But I am still call it for Marino !
UPDATE !!!!!!!!!! Special Election Law
§ 7106 General election laws applicable.
(a) Every special election in a representative or senatorial district shall be provided for, opened, held, conducted and closed and the result thereof ascertained and certified in the same manner, at the same places and subject to the same laws, so far as the same may be applicable, as prescribed for the general election; unless otherwise provided for in this chapter or elsewhere in this title.
Looks like loop hole in the law that will allow these 16 year olds to vote !!
UPDATE AND OMG !!!!! Election officials may be correct !!!!!!! The next General Election is November 2018 and technically those 16 today will most likely be 18 at the “next General Election” OMG ! But wait! Let’s review the law for “Special Elections”

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
145th GENERAL ASSEMBLY
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 15 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO ELECTIONS.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:
Section 1. Amend §1701, Title 15 of the Delaware Code by designating the entirety of the existing section as subsection “(a)” thereof and by adding a new subsection “(b)” thereto as follows:
“(b) The Department shall permit registration of any citizen and bona fide resident of this State 16 years of age or older through the Division of Motor Vehicles as set forth in §2050(a) of this Chapter, provided that such applicant shall not be a qualified voter unless the person will be 18 years of age or older on or before the day of the general election next succeeding the applicant’s registration.”.
Section 2. The provisions of this Act shall take effect on January 1, 2012.
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.
No disrespect to a few democratic elected state official that I admire and respect! But your party allowed Jack Markell to destroy the solid foundation that once made Delaware a beautiful safe state to build a career and raise a family! Our prisons are in crisis to a point of Helter Skelter! Our State Police force is underfunded and undermanned! Wilmington is Murdertown USA! Jack Markell’s re-engineering of Delaware’s public school system was a train wreck victimizing amazing public school teachers and our children! Electing Stephanie Hansen will be rewarding failure and would continue the collapsing of this amazing state!
If your worried about John Marino and man who put himself in harm’s way during his years as a police officer followed by serving his community! I’d say don’t worry! Worry about Stephanie Hansen who couldn’t stand on her own during her campaign and had to have the “former” governor of “Maryland” to campaign for her! Go figure ! Hello !! McFly !! We’re talking a Delaware political race! Why this guy from Maryland coming in? Then there is former V P Joe who had no contact or business with Hansen the last eight years! Folks the political pony show is all about the democrats maintaining power that would push Delaware deeper in debt as they raise taxes on seniors and small business owners! Delaware has one of the biggest home foreclosures in the nation and OMG ! Jack Markells Chinese butt-buddy Wanxiang owes $1,000,000.00 dollars in back school taxes and fines! Red Clay’s share is about $800,000.00! Red Clay admin tells me to tell my elected officials ! Well duh! Red Clay school board members are elected officials! Hansen doesn’t have the GRIT to confront these issues !! John Marino does!
To all the voters in the Delaware 10th Senate District! Please help take Delaware off the death watch! Please vote for John Marino! Save our state ! Elect John Marino!
