Coming Soon - Endorsements for September 14 Primary

Over the next week, this blog will include a series of endorsements for the September 14 Democratic Primary, including Mayor, D.C. Council Chairman, D.C. Councilmember At-Large, and the Ward seats that are on the ballot. My hope is that it will provide food for thought for those who have not yet decided who to support in this important upcoming election that will shape the future of our city for the next four years. I welcome your views.

Note that voting actually begins on Monday, August 30 -- when the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics opens for in-person early voting at its One Judiciary Square headquarters (Suite 250N).  On September 4, four other locations across the city will open for early voting.  This is the first time the District is permitting early voting without the need to provide a reason.  The Board of Elections now has up a special website for the primary, which includes a video of how the new voting machines will work, sample ballots, absentee ballot information, a way to verify your registration status online, and find your polling place.
