Cape Gazette NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 16 - THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2013 9 By Kara Nuzback knuzback@capegazette.com Dewey Beach's antiquated pa- per records to identify qualified voters is now a thing of the past. At its April 6 meeting, Dewey Beach Town Council voted unan- imously to approve amendments to the town code to allow elec- tronic voter registration. "I'm here with final proposal," said election committee Chair- woman Beverly Corelle. ' ll I can say is, 'Hooray.'" For Corelle, the years-long task of establishing an electronic system began when she first volunteered for Dewey Beach Board of Elections during the town council election in Septem- ber 2009. She was handed the arduous task of confirming voter eligibility using paper records. When the elections commit- tee was formed in 2010, Corelle Skateboarders look to artists for support By Molly MacMillan mollymacmillan@capegazette.com Leading up to their art show and free skate Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5, organizers of the Epworth United Methodist Church Skate Project recently announced a poster contest open to all ages to raise awareness for the local skate community. Original designs for an llxl7- inch poster in any media that illustrate this year's theme, "What one empty lot could be," will be accepted through April 22 at Liquid Board Shop on Route 1 with a completed entry form, also available at Liquid or online. On Saturday, May 4, an art show and silent auction will be held at Liquid Board Shop with as many as 20 local artists who support the skate community donating work to raise funds for a future skate park. The following day, Epworth UMC will hold a Free Skate Day, one of several held each year since the church made its park- ing lot available for skaters to create a temporary skate park after repeated attempts to orga- nize a permanent park have been unsuccessful. Organizer Susan Selph said the poster contest is part of the overall movement by the skate community to raise funds and awareness for a skate park. "Skateboarding has become such a mainstream sport, when people come to our area they don't ask if we have a skate park, they ask where the skate park is," Selph said. With the growth of the Ep- worth UMC Skate Project, addition of more skate days and community involvement, she hopes one day a skate park in the Cape Region will be a reality.

DE 302-645-0305 became its co- chair. In 2011, she began the process of es- tablishing an electronic vot- er registration system for the town's 2,300 eli- Beverly Corelle gible voters. At a February 2011 town meet- ing, Corelle asked council for funding for the project. Council said it had no spare funds to give the committee, but Dewey Beach volunteers rallied to help. Residents David King and Betsy Damos donated a new computer with a remote backup system; former Commissioner Jim Laird volunteered to pay for the software program the com- mittee needed; former Town Webmaster Dick Cleaveland told Corelle he would design a voter registration database. The com- mittee launched the new system during the September 2012 elec- tion cycle; paper records were kept on hand as backup. The next town election is scheduled Saturday, Sept. 21. Unregistered voters have until Monday, July 15 to register their names in the new electronic system. Dewey Beach is one of several towns in Sussex County in that it allows nonresidents to Vote in the annual town elections. Under the amendments, new property owners will have to provide evidence to Town Hall proving their eligibility to vote, such as property records. "New owners will not be au- tomatically registered," Corelle said. "It won't impact anybody who already owns now; it's for the future." Corelle was recognized for her efforts in January, when town council named her Volunteer of the. Year. "I want to thank you for recognizing me, indi- vidually as volunteer of the year," Corelle said at the April meet- ing. "But I take that also as your appreciation for the work of the committee and for our getting this project through completion."
