Attention voting residents of North Cleveland Park and south Van Ness: No one turned in nominating petitions for your open ANC 3F07 seat in the last round. Now is the time to get a representative on this elected body that carries “great weight” with DC policymakers.
Here’s information about the seat and how to run. The deadline for returning completed petitions to the DC Board of Elections is Monday, March 16th.
The challenge period for the other North Cleveland Park seat, 3F01, ended on February 27th. If no one turned in nominating petitions, that seat will also be certified as vacant and the process will begin again. If more than one candidate turned in petitions, there will be a special election, most likely at an upcoming ANC 3F meeting.
These elected representatives are here to give the neighborhood a voice with DC agencies. When all seven seats on ANC 3F are filled, that voice is amplified.
Here’s the February 21st DC Board of Elections notice about the 3F07 vacancy:
