The bombshell dropped late Saturday night, when Mike Debonis tweeted the results of the Post’s poll regarding September’s mayoral primary: “#postpoll mayoral top line among LVs: Gray 53, Fenty 36, Alexander 2, S. Brown 2, Undecided 6.” That means, among likely voters, Fenty’s trailing by 17 points. As far as anyone can tell, it’s all about attitude at this point, and everyone is preferring the idea of a slow and methodical Vincent Gray to the quick, shocking change of Adrian Fenty.
This morning opened the polls for the mayoral primary, with early voting running from today through election day at five polling sites throughout the city. Beginning today, you can vote at DCBOEE Headquarters at One Judiciary Square, and beginning Saturday, you can also vote at Chevy Chase Community Center (Ward 3), Hine Junior High School (Ward 6), Southeast Tennis and Learning Center (Ward 8) and Turkey Thicket Rec Center (Ward 5). It’s all electronic voting, everywhere except for DCBOEE. If you long for the touch of a pencil and paper when it comes to ballots, head to the DCBOEE HQ.
If you’re set in your convictions and don’t see changing your mind, even if either of them are caught with a live boy or a dead girl, you can head out and vote starting today, and DCBOEE will be updating the wait time on their site every 15 minutes or so.
