We know D.C. Get our free newsletter to stay in the know.

The 2020 D.C. primary is upon us, with Wards 2, 4, 7, and 8 voting for representatives from their wards and the entire city casting ballots for at-large and federal seats. In previous years, City Paper has asked politicians where they stand on the key issues we identify, and shared that information with you. This year, we want to improve our elections coverage by making a voters guide that reflects the issues that matter most to you. So, with the support of the Solutions Journalism Network and Hearken, we’re asking you: What are the issues you want to see local politicians focus on in the coming years? Once we know what you care about, we’ll ask candidates for local office how they plan to address your issues. We hope this approach empowers both you and our reporting by holding politicians accountable to D.C. residents.

You can let us know your top issues by filling out this google form, or texting us.
