With nearly 1,500 votes in on our unscientific poll of washingtonpost.com readers, Frederick Douglass is running away with the competition to be on the D.C. quarter design. As we told you last week, the city will submit three designs to the Mint, which will pick a winner by the summer. The city will solicit public input from May 21 through June 20, and the coin should be ready for circulation in January, city officials said.
