D.C. Votes Early, Often

D.C. Early Vote

More than 11 percent of registered voters in D.C. had already voted by the time the polls opened this morning at 7 a.m., D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics figures show.

The BOEE just uploaded all the results of early voting, which saw 53,961 ballots cast. The early winners: President Barack Obama, obviously (he was beating Mitt Romney 94 percent to 4.7 percent), Eleanor Holmes Norton (who had 90 percent, compared to 4.5 for Statehood Green Party challenger Natale Stracuzzi and 4.1 percent for Libertarian Bruce Majors), Phil Mendelson (winning the race to become D.C. Council chairman with 74.2 percent against Calvin Gurley, who had 24.7), and Vincent Orange (who had 34.4 percent of the vote in a seven-person race for two at-large D.C. Council seats).

Also ahead, after early voting? David Grosso, who was beating incumbent Councilmember Michael Brown 20.7 percent to 18.1 percent.

But it's still early, so those results could change—though Obama, Norton, Mendelson, and Orange should still probably be pretty confident.

    Yeah I think you are probably right about that. Why is that ? Is it because you did not re-port on the other candidates! Is that why Delegate Norton got 90% of the vote in early voting? You know our local media has a civic duty, to report on all the candidates running for public office.That's why the First Amendment protects you in your writing so you can speak freely and have the right in freedom of the press. That is why the local media has that civic duty to the public. So when our local media writes about the corruption in our dc government. Just remember who put's them there.

    I like to thank all those that voted for me. I met about 9 thousand people in my campaign this year, base on the amount of campaign cards I passed out throughout our city. So thank you very much for believeing in me. I feel successful that I receive 11,005 votes base on the people I encountered. Most likely 2,005 votes were from the party menbers. So most likely all the people I met voted for me. Just think what could of happen if our local media did there civic duty and roported on my campaign.Stracuzzi for Congress will Start his 2014 campaign 1/15/2013Platform1.

    Lino and I actually both got higher percentages in the final vote, he 5% and I 6%. Neither of us got free air time on a taxpayer funded show at Maryland Public Television as Norton did, or were able to use public buildings of a sudden barrage of election cycle job fairs, press conferences, photo ops, etc., as she did.

    True! Last nite on all the Election Coverage all they spoke about was the money spent in all of the races. Matt Lauer ask Elizabeth Warren today, that her victory cost her 66 Million Dollars couldn't that trump some candidates basic good Ideas in a campaign. But what they did not talk about was? That the media made the must profit from all of those canpaigns.
