Petitioning the president with petitions
DC Vote plans to send President Obama over 200 pounds' worth of petitions asking for a vote for District residents in Congress, according to the Associated Press.
The group says it will send more than 41,000 petitions on Wednesday from the Union Station post office. They’re also asking the president to include a statement about a vote for the city in his upcoming State of the Union address.
The District's representative in Congress, Eleanor Holmes Norton, is expected to join the group.
Obama has said in the past he supports a congressional vote for D.C. residents.
