Wednesday’s a pretty big day in the upcoming special election, it’s the day that ballot petitions are due. Each of the seventeen candidates must collect the signatures of 3,000 DC voters by Wednesday, and so you might see a horde of people outside of Metro stations, bars, and your favorite social space. You may find this process tedious, and I assure you, you’re not alone. This process, though, is how we get electoral choice.
So, a word of advice? Sign the petition.
