The election edition: D.C. area blogs

This post has been corrected and updated.

Good afternoon. It's the day before the primary day in the District and Maryland and candidates are scrambling to do last minute campaigning before Tuesday evening. Of course, lots of folks have already voted since both Maryland and D.C. piloted early voting this year -- but there are always the procrastinators. The blogosphere is full of campaign chatter today -- so we'll include a roundup of those posts along with some non-campaign-related items in today's selection of posts.

Borderstan reminds us that tonight Tuesday night is the last night of the U Street Movie series. Tonight’sTuesday's featured films Duke Ellington’s Washington and Soul Power. And just in case it rains (not in the forecast, but you never know, the rain date is Sept. 21.

Drop your . . . oh wait. Frozen Tropics reports this amusing tale. D.C. police responded to a report of nude people (two women and a man) at an art gallery. Well it turns out the three people were part of a gallery exhibit. File this under: nothing to see here folks, move along.

As I mentioned in the introduction, the blogosphere is alive with primary election day chatter. Here's a selection of posts from some of the blogs I regularly read. It is by no means comprehensive and if there's a post you think should be included, please message me at aratanil@washpost.com. Here at The Post we offer our own Voter's Guide.

14th and You blogs about election madness in the District.

Borderstan breaks down the ANC races in the Dupont, Logan, U Street area.

Brookland Avenue also has some thoughts about the election.

Greater Greater Washington has a series of posts from contributors about the D.C. mayor’s race.

The Other 35 Percent has his endorsements

In Maryland, The PG Politics blog has responses from candidates in the county on how they would work with non-profits in the community.

Bethesda Actually has statements from candidates in several Montgomery County races.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading. Have a great day -- and if you haven't already, don't forget to vote tomorrow.
