ANC1A to Have Special Election for SMD1A05 at July 13th Meeting
Following the May meeting of ANC1A, Commissioner Thu Nguyen (1A05) stepped down to move to Philadelphia. This vacated her seat on the Commission and two candidates have stepped up with hopes to fill that vacancy — Christine Miller and Oliver Barham (Borderstan has a nice profile of them here).
Miller and Barham will face off in a special election scheduled for July 13 at Harriet Tubman Elementary School’s gymnasium (3101 13th St. NW) during ANC 1A’s regular monthly meeting. Polls will open at 7 p.m. and close at 8:30 p.m. Voting is open to all registered voters who live within the ANC 1A05 district.
Coinciding with the Special Election, Commissioners (and anyone) interested in serving on the ANC during the next term will need to pick up nominating petitions.
The Board of Elections (BOE) will make petitions available beginning Monday, July 11th. The petitions, with the usual 25 or more signatures of registered voters in a Single Member District, will be due at the BOE office by the close of business on Wednesday, August 10th.
