Do you have a plan to vote?

Let us tell you the information you need to register and cast a ballot in D.C.

D.C. has seen a rash of high-profile restaurants shutter over the past couple months. Rising rents and a boom of competition mean if you can’t get Washington’s discerning diners to eat, you’ll be eaten. Restaurant lifespans, after all, are notoriously short even in good times. (Restaurant years are kind of like dog years in that way.) Here’s a look at some of the establishments that have closed or are closing soon, and how long they lasted:

Meatballs 624 E St. NW 8 months

Casa Nonna 1250 Connecticut Ave. NW 1 year, 9 months

Buddha Bar 455 Massachusetts Ave. NW 2 years, 1 month

Current Sushi 1215 Connecticut Ave. NW 3 years, 2 months

Potenza 1430 H St. NW 3 years, 4 months

3 Bar & Grill 2950 Clarendon Blvd., Arlington 4 years, 8 months

Zola 800 F St. NW 10 years

Capital Q BBQ 707 H St. NW 15 years

Armand’s Pizzeria 4231 Wisconsin Ave. NW 37 years
