Information on Running as a Write In Candidate for ANC Commissioner
It's not too late to run for ANC. The deadline to have your name on the ballot passed after 5:00 p.m. on August 8, 2018. However, you can still run as a write in candidate..
The qualifications for a write in candidate are the same as for someone whose name is on the ballot:
Contact the Board of Elections (727-2525) if you have additional questions about becoming a write in candidate or meeting the qualifications. They can also help you verify what ANC and SMD you live in. (You can also contact the Office of Advisory Neighborhood Commissions at 727-9945 for help.)
The Board will give you an information packet. It includes a map of your SMD boundaries, and, among other things, the campaign finance rules.
You may accept up to $25 per person in campaign contributions. You must report the total amount of your contributions and expenses to the Office of Campaign Finance following the election. Keep your receipts!
The winners of the November 2 election will be sworn in on January 2, 2019.
