The D.C. Board of Elections made the thrifty decision Monday to let voters select a replacement for disgraced former D.C. Council Chairman Kwame R. Brown on Nov. 6 - the same day voters cast their ballot for president and multiple council races.
Mayor Vincent C. Gray's pick to head the increasingly vital D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics faces an uphill route to confirmation because of his residency status, an issue that derailed another mayoral pick mere weeks ago.
"We're still concerned about confusion," Mr. Danzansky said. "It's something we're going to have to work on."
Mr. Danzansky noted the board may have to schedule a special election at a future date, anyway.
