From the Nine, One: DC Elects Vincent Orange


For many 6 of DC’s 8 wards, yesterday’s lightly attended special election had just one question on the ballot: who should serve as At-Large Councilmember for the District, and offered a slate of candidates.  As was expected, the populace was fractured in their voting, and no single candidate took more than 30% of the vote.  In the end, Vincent Orange needed just 12,216 votes to capture the seat.

Republican Pat Mara had a very strong showing, surprising many, with 11,096 votes.  Interim At-Large Councilmember Sekou Biddle disappointed many with just 8,842 votes.  Bryan Weaver rounded out the top four candidates with 5,665 votes.

Full election results are available from the DCBOEE.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
