5105 Regulations Governing the Election of Members of County Board of Conservation District Supervisors
Current regulations contain a discrepancy between voter qualification in Kent and New Castle Counties as compared to voter qualification in Sussex County. In Kent and New Castle Counties, qualified voters must hold title to land in the Specified Board Supervisor area. In Sussex County, qualified voters must hold title to land in Sussex County. This modification would change voter eligibility standards in Sussex County to mirror those in Kent and New Castel Counties.
This modification was requested by the Sussex Conservation District Board of Supervisors and the Delaware Association of Conservation District in an effort t to keep Title 7, Chapter 39, consistent and uniform throughout each of Delaware’s three Conservation Districts.
