WaPo: An Influx of New Voters

Anne Marimow of the Washingtonpost delves into the topic of increased voter registration in the District (graphic) and how the participation of new voters may impact the upcoming Mayoral Election. Voter registration has risen by over 47,000 democrats since the 2006  election due to both new resident influx and residents inspired to vote for Obama in the 2008 presidential election. Marimow’s article highlights our neighborhood as our voting precinct (#143) is new and did not exist during the last mayoral race.
