Today, We Write History
Today history will be made. It will be a day when the first African American president is elected to office, in Sen. Barack Obama, or the day when the nation will elect the first woman to the vice presidency, in Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin.
In the District, incumbent Democrats seeking reelection are ready to comfortably ride back into office on the wave of excitement about the presidential race.
Locally, the biggest question is the at-large race, where three of seven candidates are fighting it out: Republican incumbent Carol Schwartz, now running as a write-in; Michael Brown, Democrat-turned-Independent, and Republican challenger Patrick Mara.
The District also returns to a fully elected school board today, as well as voting for its U.S. Delegate to the House of Representatives, and shadow senator and shadow representatives.
The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Vote today and let us know how it went at the polls.
Let's write history together!
