Biden School Alumnus Nominated for Election Commissioner

DOVER, Del. – Governor John Carney on Thursday announced his intention to nominate Anthony Albence (MA '95) as Delaware’s next election commissioner.

The position, which oversees Delaware’s elections operations, carries a four-year term. The Delaware Senate is expected to consider the Governor’s nomination this month. Albence would replace Elaine Manlove, who has served in the position since 2007.

“For more than a decade, Anthony has directed our elections operations in New Castle County, and I’m confident that he has the skills and experience necessary to serve as Delaware’s next Election Commissioner,” said Governor Carney. “This is an important position that helps safeguard our elections, and make sure that all Delawareans have access to the voting booth. I want to thank Elaine Manlove for her service to our state, and I look forward to the Senate considering this nomination.”

Since 2007, Albence has served as county director at the Delaware Department of Elections, overseeing staff and operations in New Castle County. In that position, he coordinated with the election commissioner on policy initiatives, and led community outreach programs for the department. Previously, Albence served as director of Public Allies Delaware, and as a training specialist at Catholic Youth Ministry in Wilmington.

As election commissioner, Albence would direct the operations of the Department of Elections, investigate potential violations of campaign finance laws, and collect and report on election results.

Albence graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the Catholic University of America in Washington, and earned his master’s degree in urban affairs and public policy from the University of Delaware.
