Make sure you can still vote in D.C.!
Concerned you might no longer able to participate in the partial franchise extended to you as a registered District of Columbia voter?
This month, the city Board of Elections and Ethics moved to expunge 93,773 persons from the voter rolls, and to make sure you're not one of them, open up this 21-megabyte PDF file and see if your name appears.
To make the purge list, according to a board news release, a voter would have had to (a) "not voted in any primary, special or general election in the District since at least 2002"; (b) "not responded to notices mailed after each general election in 2004, 2006 and 2008"; (c) "had no other contact with the [BOEE] during that time, including any update of a voter registration record through the Department of Motor Vehicles or another District voter registration agency"; and (d) "had notices to their address of residence returned to [BOEE] ... by the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable." All of this, the board assures, is being done in accordance with federal law.
If you want to be left on the rolls, call 202-727-2525 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
