D.C. Court of Appeals Hears Oral Arguments on Whether Voters Will Elect a D.C. Attorney General Before 2018

On May 29, a 3-judge panel of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in Zukerberg v D.C. Board of Elections. See this story. The issue is whether the D.C. voters will elect an Attorney General earlier than 2018.

In 2010, the voters passed a charter amendment which said on the ballot that, if passed, that office would be chosen by the voters starting in 2014. But the full text of the amendment simply said the first election would be in the future, and didn’t specify when. Later, the D.C. council passed a bill saying such elections would be held starting in 2018.
