Last week, LL reported that Ward 8 candidate Christopher Barry had never voted in the District. That’s wrong.
The D.C. Board of Elections tells LL that it made a mistake on the voting record provided to LL. According to DCBOE, Barry cast a provisional ballot in the 2012 general election.
That vote didn’t show up on the voting record provided to LL. Barry, who had three days to comment, didn’t respond to LL before the story ran to say he had voted.
Via email, DCBOE spokeswoman Denise Tolliver says she isn’t sure why the voting record missed Barry’s 2012 ballot.
