Got Questions? The Anacostia Park and Community Collaborative (APACC) has the candidates.
The Democratic primary in June usually determines the winners of DC elections. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) is seeking a third term, with two members of the council (both named “White”) and one former local neighborhood official challenging her. There is no incumbent in two of the council seats.
