Elections board to decide on unaffiliated voters today

Washington Post Editors

Togo West, chairman of the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics, announced during a special meeting this morning that the body will make a decision today on Mayor Adrian M. Fenty's petition to allow unaffiliated voters to register as Democrats same day under new elections laws.

On Aug. 12, the board adopted emergency regulations to clarify the new laws that went into effect in February. Voters registered as "no party" cannot declare a party at the last minute to vote in the Sept. 14th primary, according to the regulations.

To Togo West:

The council has already voted down an amendment regarding unaffiliated voters.

It is not the role of the BOA to veto a legislative decision.

First Adrian Fenty pocket vetoes legislation that would make it illegal to pay cash to buy votes.

Now Adrian Fenty wants to change voter registrations rules at the last moment.

Adrian Fenty is a liar and a crook who will do anything and say anything in order to be reelected.

Bye-bye Adrian. You are going to lose.
