Biden eyes presidential primary win in home state

DOVER, Del. (AP) – Joe Biden has already clinched the Democratic presidential nomination but is looking for icing on the cake with a primary win in his home state.

The longtime Delaware senator and former vice president faces only token opposition in Tuesday’s primary from former Democratic contenders Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Both dropped out of the race months ago but their names remain on Delaware’s primary ballot.

President Donald Trump also faces only token opposition from a perennial gadfly candidate in the state’s GOP presidential primary.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, but the number of open polling places is less than a third of that in the 2016 presidential primary.

Under Democratic Gov. John Carney’s emergency coronavirus declarations, in-person voting locations were limited and absentee ballot applications were sent to all registered Democrats and Republicans. Voters were allowed to choose “sick or temporarily or permanently physically disabled” as a reason to be allowed to vote absentee.
