One of the most important elections in recent history is quickly approaching and its vitally important that we all vote.  The COVID-19 public health crisis has changed the way we live and specifically how we will vote in this year's election.  In direct response to the changes surrounding how we will vote this year I have organized a Town Hall with Alice Miller, Director of the DC Board of Elections.  Director Miller will provide us with critical information on how we can cast our ballots safely and efficiently.

Join us live today on Zoom at 4:30PM.  If you would like to send questions in ahead of the town hall, email Silas Grant at SHGrant@DCCOUNCIL.US.  If you are unable to attend today's town hall, information on how to safely cast your ballot can be found at

In service,
