Hey DC residents, don’t forget to vote today! (And tell your friends, too).
Polls are open until 8 pm, and if you don’t vote, it’s less effective to complain when you don’t like things that the DC Council decides! (And if you didn’t know, this is a special election for the Councilmember At-Large seat previously held by now-chair Phil Mendelsohn).
- If you don’t know where your polling place is, find out here: http://www.dcboee.org/voter_info/find_pollingplace/
- If you are not registered to vote in DC and would like to register, you can register at your polling place by bringing a government ID with your address, or one of the following (with your address):Current lease or utility bill, bank statement, government issued check, paycheck/stub with your name and address, or other government issued document that shows your name and address
- If you’re not sure who to vote for, here’s a voter guide that DCist put together, which gives some brief snapshots of the field and links to all of the candidates’ websites and other sources of information, as well as providing some information on today’s ballot initiative for a Home Rule Charter amendment.
