Recently, the DC Board of Elections announced the Vote Safe DC campaign. The Board is urging all voters to vote by mail for the Primary Election on June 2nd and the Ward 2 Special Election June 16th.
The ballots won’t be automatically mailed. Voters will need to request a ballot, and you can start requesting them now.
The DC Board of Elections will be reaching out to residents to let them know, but it’s always helpful for all of us to help spread the news to our neighbors.
The DC Board of Elections will have 15 voting centers open, and voters will be able to vote in-person or drop-off their ballot. Early voting is still an option, but the dates have been pushed back a little. The centers will be open May 22 – June 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. for the Primary Election, and June 12 – June 16 for the Ward 2 Special Election.
However, I would still encourage you to go ahead and request your ballot.
Once you send your ballot in, you can track it to make sure it has been received. These are unusual times, but we can still carry out our civic duty and keep our community safe.
Virtual Meet & Greets
March felt like it was 6 months long, but we’re in April now, which means we are about 60 days away from the Primary Election.
Typically, one of the most important ways that supporters can help out on the campaign is by hosting Meet & Greets. These would be at someone’s home or business and the host would invite neighbors and residents to hear about some of the work that I’ve done in my first term and my ideas for the future of our city. It’s also where I get a lot of helpful feedback!
We can still do this (social-distancing style) by using the Zoom video platform. I hosted a parent chat last week, and I really enjoyed seeing folks again, even if through a screen.
If you’re interested in hosting a virtual Meet & Greet, my team will do all of the IT work and provide you with a link to share. All you have to do is invite your friends to join in on the video call!
