Washington, D.C., is holding a special election for council-at-large on April 23. Because this is a special election, parties don’t have nominees. All individuals who wish to appear on the ballot must submit a petition with at least 3,000 names. Although 20 candidates took out petition forms, only eight submitted the petition by the due date on January 23. See this story. Assuming all eight remain on the ballot, voters will choose one of them, with no run-off.
Six are Democrats, one is a Republican, one is a Green. The Green is Perry Redd. The Republican is Patrick Mara. The Democrats are Anita Bonds, Michael A. Brown, Matthew Frumin, John Settles, Elissa Silverman, and Paul Zukerberg.
