April 2014 primaries

15 Oct
We’ve been erroneously telling DC libertarians that the Wards electing city council members in 2014 are the odd numbered ones, 1 (Petworth/Columbia Heights), 3 (upper NW), 5 (Brookland), and 7 (Anacostia).  We were wrong, at least if the DC Board of Elections website is right (NB – last year it listed Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton as a Republican for some weeks.)  Instead of 7, it’s Ward 6 (Capitol Hill).

April 1, 2014 Primary Election
The District of Columbia will hold a primary election on April 1, 2014. In a primary election, the voters registered with each of the major political parties select their party’s representative, or nominee, to run for partisan office in the general election.  The Democratic, Republican, DC Statehood Green, and Libertarian parties have qualified to hold primaries.  Because primaries are closed, party elections in the District, only voters registered with one of these parties may vote in their party’s election.
Early Voting for the April 1, 2014 Primary Election begins March 17, 2014 and ends on March 29th, 2014. There will be no voting on Sunday, March 23rd, 2014.
