DC COPE Report: DC Special Election

Thursday, April 11, 2013

DC COPE Report: DC Special Election(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Early voting has already begun in the DC Special Election on April 23. There are only two items on the ballot: the At-Large City Councilmember and Question 8: DC Budget Autonomy. The Metro Council has elected to make no endorsement in the At-Large race, but stands with Council ally DC Vote in supporting a “yes” vote on Question 8, which would allow the DC government to spend local tax revenues without having to wait for congressional approval. On the DC Bureau of Elections website you can find your DC polling place and get more information on early voting; to volunteer with DC Vote on Election Day, contact Eugene Kinlow at ekinlow@dcvote.org. - photo: "Yes on 8" sign on U Street NW; photo by Julia Kann
