The District of Columbia has 37 ANCs which are subdivisions of the city's 8 Wards. Representatives are elected to advise the DC government on issues relating to traffic, parking, recreation, street improvements, liquor licenses, zoning, economic development, police protection, sanitation and trash collection, and the city's annual budget. ANC Commissioners serve two-year terms and receive no salary. Each Commissioner represents approximately 2,000 residents in his or her Single Member District area.
Application GuidelinesBeginning Monday, June 25, 2018, the Board of Elections will give out nomination petitions for the next ANC elections. Interested candidates will then have until close of business on Wednesday, July 25, 2018, to return the petitions with the signatures of (at least) 25 registered voters who also live in the Single Member District (SMD) that they wish to represent. And on November 8th, Election Day, the voters will make their selection. The winning candidates will take office once they are sworn in, scheduled for the first week in January. Candidates must go to the Board personally to pick up their petitions, or send a representative to pick them up. (If you send a representative, you will need to give your representative a letter authorizing them to pick up the petitions on your behalf.) In addition to the petitions, the Board will also give the candidates a list of the registered voters who live in their SMD and a map of the SMD's boundaries. Candidates will also need to file a "Declaration of Candidacy". You can file this form when you pick up the petitions, or you can file it when you turn in your petitions, but you must file it before the deadline if you wish to have your name on the November ballot. The Board is located on the second floor of 441 4th Street NW in room 250N. Their phone number is (202) 727-2525. You can also pick up a lot of useful information by visiting the DC Board of Elections and Ethics website at https://www.dcboee.org/home.asp.
