Rosh Hashana primaries

Delaware's primaries are held on Saturdays. This year, they are also held on Rosh Hashana. I'm wondering if it might be less expensive for the State to move the date, then it would be to process 13,000 absentee ballots. Regardless of the cost, moving the date is the right thing to do. Maybe those ballots would be best used on candidates expressing an interest in holding primaries on some day other than a Saturday. I'm not Jewish, but I am disgusted.

[Later -- A few more details from Saturday's Wilmington News Journal. ]
