Don't sleep in Ward 7

Back in March, Miss V wrote a blog post about voter turn-out in DC. Since we are nearing election, there is no time like the present to remind all the candidates for Mayor, Council Chair, and Council at-Large that WARD 7 VOTES!!!

I looked at the voter turn out for the 2002, 2004, 2006, and 2008 elections available on the DC Board of Elections and Ethics website... Here are some truths:
  • In 2004 and 2008 primary election Ward 7 had the 2nd highest voter turn-out, respectively.
  • In 2006, Ward 7 had the 4th highest voter turn-out.
  • In the general elections from 2002-2006, Ward 7 had the 5th for highest voter turn-out.
  • In the 2008 general elections, Ward 7 had the 4th highest voter turn-out.
  • Ward 7 has the 4th highest number of registered voters (as of July 2010)
Also, Miss V is convinced that there are more undecided voters in Ward 7 than are being counted. I know the Ward 7 Straw Poll was overwhelmingly for Gray and K. Brown. However, many of the undecided voters did not attend. More on why voters are undecided to come later this week.
