(LEWES, Del.) - Cape Henlopen High School is home to not one but polling places for two different districts. That meant a constant stream of voters going through the doors. Long time and first-time voters alike are represented this year and some say it's President Trump that brings them to the polls.
WRDE's political analyst John Brady spoke with Governor Carney and County Election Chief Kenneth McDowell to get an idea of just how much that passion over President Trump is boosting turnout. "At the end of the day this will be the largest non-presidential election turnout in Delaware's history," he says.
Healthcare is a big issue bringing people to the polls. Some feel as though it needs to be preserved the way it is in Delaware but others are saying there are much-needed changes that need to be made both locally and nationally.
In addition to healthcare, there are several other issues driving voters to cast their ballots. Despite the different points of views on these issues, there is one consistency. All voters are making decisions they feel will be the most beneficial to their local community and the country as a whole.
