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

There’s a new steakhouse in the District, and it is, by my reckoning, D.C.’s first true steakhouse: Ray’s the Steaks at East River. It’s a meat emporium designed for, and run by, longtime Washingtonians — you know, the ones marginalized not only by the federal government, but also by the local transients who’d rather drink battery acid than cross the Anacostia. Darrow Montgomery has photographed each of the employees at Ray’s the Steaks at East River to give you a glimpse into the soul of this one-of-a-kind steakhouse. — Tim Carman
