DOVER, Del. (AP) - Members of a task force charged with reviewing Delaware's election laws for possible changes are finishing up work on a report that is scheduled to be submitted to state lawmakers later this month.

Among the issues still being discussed by the panel, which meets Wednesday in Dover, are allowing no-excuse absentee voting and early voting.

Panel members previously agreed to recommend that the three county elections boards be eliminated in favor of a single state elections board.

Officials also are weighing whether to recommend that primary elections, now held in September, be moved to the second Tuesday in August.
