Wards 1, 2 voters face election deadline
The deadline for D.C. voters in Wards 1 and 2 to register for the Aug. 21 special election is Monday, officials with the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics said.
The election is being held to fill the State Board of Education slot left open when former school board representative Jeff Smith left because of his disagreement with Mayor Adrian M. Fenty’s school takeover plan.
Ward residents can register in person at the elections board office at 441 Fourth Street NW, Room 250, or by mailing in an application, which is available at D.C. public libraries, firehouses and police stations. The applications must be postmarked no later than Monday.
Voters also can complete an online registration form at www.dcboee.org, but must send in a printed and signed application as well. Registration also is available when voters renew their driver’s licenses at the D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles.
