The D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics Twitter feed was rocking this morning, with news of the drawing for ballot order for the April 26 special election for an At-Large D.C. Council seat. For the legions of you who are likely to turn out to vote , the candidates will appear in the following order:

  1. Alan Page
  2. Dorothy Douglas
  3. Bryan Weaver
  4. Arkan Haile
  5. Joshua Lopez
  6. Patrick Mara
  7. Sekou Biddle (the incumbent)
  8. Tom Brown
  9. Vincent Orange
  10. “Write-In, if any”

Remember, Washington City Paper, NBC4’s Tom Sherwood, and WPFW-FM’s D.C. Politics will co-sponsor a candidate forum at the Black Cat on Tuesday, April 12. Candidates who had raised more than $10,000 by March 10 or got more than 10 percent in a public poll were invited, which means Biddle, Haile, Lopez, Mara, Orange, and Weaver got an invitation.
