Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – DCNOW announces its endorsements of five D.C. Council candidates in the upcoming D.C. primary election of June 4, 2024. DCNOW’s President Rose Brunache said, “DCNOW is pleased to endorse current D.C. Councilmembers and others to the D.C. Council. These leaders are dedicated to our city and will be key to further improve the nation’s capital.”

 

DCNOW endorses the following candidates:

-          Robert White (Democrat) – For re-election to an At-Large seat

-          Brooke Pinto (Democrat) – For re-election to the Ward Two seat

-          Eboni-Rose Thompson (Democrat) – For election to the Ward Seven seat

-          Rahman Branch (Democrat) – For election to the Ward Eight’s seat

Since D.C. has closed primary elections, to vote in a party primary, a person must be registered with a certain political party.

 

Elections-Related Information

Be sure to vote in this important primary. People can vote:

-          By mail (United States Postal Service)

-          By placing their ballot in any mail ballot drop box (Drop boxes will be open until 8:00 p.m. on June 4, 2024) – A list of drop box locations is on https://dcboe.org/voters/find-out-where-to-vote/mail-ballot-drop-box-locations. There are multiple drop boxes in each of D.C.’s eight wards.

-          In person – either:

§  During early voting period (From 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. from May 26, 2024, to June 2, 2024 – except for Memorial Day, which will be May 27, 2024) – A list of early voting centers is on https://earlyvoting.dcboe.org/. There are multiple early voting centers in each ward.

§  On election day (From 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on June 4, 2024) – A list of election day vote centers is on https://dcboe.org/voters/find-out-where-to-vote/election-day-vote-centers. There are multiple election day vote centers in every ward. People can vote at any vote center.

 

People can track their mailed-in ballot on https://votedc.ballottrax.net/voter/.

 

Non-citizens, who are D.C. residents, can vote in these primaries. As shown in the D.C. Board of Election’s website’s Sample Ballots section, non-citizens will be able to vote in only D.C. Council races. The U.S. House of Representatives passing “H.R. 192 - To prohibit individuals who are not citizens of the United States from voting in elections in the District of Columbia and to repeal the Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2022” (another form of Congressional interference of this current Congress) on May 23, 2024, presumably does not affect this election. Although Congress failed in preventing D.C.’s new law (that allowed this population to vote in local D.C. elections) from becoming law, they are again trying to prohibit this group from voting. H.R. 192 was mentioned in the “D.C. Elections-Related Legislation Update” piece of DCNOW’s blog. There will be at least one more post on DCNOW’s blog on this bill.
