Another two names have been added to Delaware’s presidential primary ballot.

 

Republicans Donald Trump and Ohio Gov. John Kasich recently turned in the required 500 signatures needed according to state law, just before their strong performances in the New Hampshire primary.

 

 

Jeb Bush, another GOP hopeful, became the first presidential candidate to officially get on the ballot last November.

 

Other Republican contenders Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Ben Carson have yet to qualify in Delaware.

 

State Senate Minority Whip Greg Lavelle (R-Sharpley), who's assisting the Rubio campaign, says they're currently awaiting the state to process their application.

 

Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are also still absent from the ballot.

 

Delawareans voting in the primary election will only be able to choose between candidates within their affiliated parties on April 26.

The final day to switch your party affiliation is Feb. 26.
