Matt Buechner, the commissioner who has represented ANC 3F07 since January, has moved out of the single member district. His resignation kicked off a special election process – one with a June 21st deadline for any resident of 3F07 who wishes to run for the seat and serve out the rest of the two-year term.

The petition requires 25 signatures. It is good to get more than 25, in the event of a challenge. The petition must be filed by June 21st using the same process as above.
Beyond being a resident of the single member district, the candidate must be a registered voter, have lived in the area continuously for 60 days prior to filing the petition, and hold no other public office.
The challenge period is from June 24 to 30th. This is when the names on the petition are available at the Board of Elections office. At the end of this period and after any challenges have been resolved, the board certifies those who qualify to run for election.
One candidate has picked up and filed a nominating petition so far. James Tandaric is the chair of the newly formed ANC 3F Schools and Universities Committee.
I am happy to report that I submitted my signatures and candidacy for ANC 3F07! We will see who else runs but am happy to be formally registered and look forward to next steps. #ANC pic.twitter.com/fwyGOXKzmJ

If Tandaric is certified by the Board of Elections and no one else has filed for candidacy or has been certified, he will be seated as the commissioner for ANC 3F07. And if the position gets more than one candidate, there will be a special election.
The DC Board of Elections has a detailed rundown of the process here.
