Delocalization in Resonance Structures

For delocalization to occur, do you have to always have resonance?

Yes - when resonance occurs, delocalization will appear. Therefore, there will be resonance in every delocalizand electron.

Yep, since delocalization is contingent on the bonds not being fixed in their places--meaning resonance!
