Tomorrow is election day, one of our single biggest opportunities to make the Washington DC region even greater. Please vote! If you didn’t vote early and are headed to the polls tomorrow, here’s a recap of our recommendations on how to vote.

Our (non-ANC) endorsements
Over the past several weeks, GGWash has released its official endorsements for a number of races. Per reader request, here they all are again, in one easy place to reference (or share).
We recommend area voters choose:
- Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine for President
- David Grosso and Robert White for DC Council at large
- Mary Lord for DC State Board of Education
- Eleanor Holmes Norton for DC Delegate
- For DC’s statehood referendum
- LuAnn Bennett and Don Beyer for Congress in Virginia
- John Delaney and Jamie Raskin for Congress in Maryland
- For the Prince George’s at-large council seat proposal
- Against Montgomery County term limits

To determine this year’s ANC endorsements, we sent a reader-generated candidate questionnaire to all ANC candidates. We then published candidate responses and collected feedback. Staff evaluated all candidate responses and feedback for contested races and recommended endorsements to our volunteer editorial board, which then made the final decision.
A note about ANC candidates noted as write-in: because they completed our survey long after we began to publish our endorsements (with the exceptions of Eve Zhurbinskiy and Nicole Cacozza, who submitted in early September), candidates had the opportunity to review our analyses before submitting their responses. While they had that advantage, we do believe our endorsed candidates would make for great commissioners and deserve your write-in vote.

Each ANC is divided into a number of Single Member Districts (SMDs), averaging about 2,000 voters. Races often hinge on a small handful of votes; Your vote—every vote—really counts. This is especially true for write-in candidates, whose biggest challenge is simply getting enough people to remember their name when they go to the ballot box.
