Democrats for Education Reform-backed candidate Brandon Todd

D.C. voters will choose the next Muriel Bowser and Marion Barry today as they cast ballots in two Council races. We’ll be posting results from Ward 4 and Ward 8 as they come in, so check back on this page throughout the night. Polls close at 8 p.m.

Need to brush up on the races? Read Will Sommer‘s cover story on the Ward 8 race and his LL column on the Ward 4 race. Also, please note that City Paper is not making endorsements in either race.

Many thanks to Chris Given for providing code to scrape the results from the D.C. Board of Elections website.

Update, 10 p.m.: All Election Day results are in, but with 163 absentee ballots still out, the races won’t be called tonight. Read more here.
