I got a number of reports about delays/lines in voting at Marie Reed in Adams Morgan:
“Wait times are Marie Reed in Adams Morgan are over an hour! Only 3 voting machines in use.”
“Marie Reed only has 3 electronic voting booths so the line is LONG.”
DC Board of Elections replied to us: “We are working to fix the situation at Marie Reed.”
Fortunately looks good everywhere else: Read More
one day of flyers from before the primary election back in June
I’m wondering if the community knows how to opt out of physical mailings from DC election campaigns. I turn to online sources for information about candidates so the physical mail is an unnecessary and unsustainable source. Google hasn’t gotten me far, so any tips would be appreciated.”
Been getting a lot of questions, as we do after every election :), about when the campaign signs have to be cleaned up. I confirmed with DCBOE that they have 30 days from the election to do so: Read More

Can we get a PSA regarding voting in DC? I’m an election worker and it’s been very quiet this week–probably because of the absentee ballots, but we’ve also encountered a number of people who don’t know some things about how easy it is to vote here. Notably: Read More
I’m writing to share that I changed my DC address and voter registration (I have my paper voter card) in January, yet my absentee ballot was sent to my previous address. I’ll now be voting in person, and I imagine there could be folks waiting for a ballot who should know they may need to do the same or should contact DCBOE to find out what their options are.”
Thanks to Michelle for sharing. I can confirm that I’ve been getting similar hauls on the daily.
It’s crazy every time I think I know who I’m voting for I get a flyer and I’m like, oh wow, I’m gonna vote for them. I have great conviction and confidence in that decision. But then I go for my afternoon constitutional and pass some lawn signs and the confidence of my earlier decision is shaken to the core. And to make matters worse the next day I get a whole new batch of flyers, shattering my previous day’s decision once and for all.

I have been curious as to who has been selling our cellphone number data to DC political candidates. is it DC government?
I get 2-3 texts per day, don’t you?”
And Katie asks: “DC folks question: How do I opt out of ALL text campaign spam from @councilofdc candidates? I text back “stop” but they are not stopping.”

Has anyone who worked early voting/election day in DC received their pay yet? If you have–because obviously I have not–who should I contact about not receiving it? This is my first year doing it in DC, so I’m not sure what the timeline usually is!”
I love walking around the city as my primary form of exercise these days. I am seeing a LOT of businesses still boarded up even though they are open. Given the conjecture that we are likely past the point of destructive behavior related to the election, and hoping that we don’t have more unrest, does anyone know if there are ANY mandates around restoring business and storefronts to BAU (Business as usual)? It looks horrible and is definitely not what we need as we go into the holiday season.“
