About this site
No one doubts that voting is important, but sometimes it can be hard to choose someone to vote for. Either you haven't paid attention, or you simply don't know enough about any of the candidates to be able to make an informed decision.
Let's Choose DC is an attempt to dig into the various candidates for an
At-Large seat on the DC Council in the April 23 special election
You'll not only get to read them, but also vote on them. If you think a candidate is too vague, say so! If there answer is detailed and precise, even if you don't agree with it, you'll get to cast your vote telling them—and other readers—as much.
As the weeks go by, we hope to build more detailed profiles on each of the candidates, and challenge them all to think beyond traditional sound bites and talking points. And by the time the election rolls around, you'll have a single place to come to see where the candidates stand.
