If Twitter activity is any indication, D.C. voters are slowly making their way to precincts across the city to cast ballots in a special election for an at-large seat on the D.C. Council.
Only a small number of the city’s registered voters were expected to vote Tuesday, and, so far, turnout has matched expectations. We asked @WashingtonPost followers to tell us what they were seeing at the precincts using #four26, an already trending D.C. election day hash tag:
Voter # 12 at precinct 128. Took longer to find a secure place for my bike than to vote. #four26
PostLocal reader @bogrosemary pointed out that plenty of voters are using #Four26DC, too:
With turnout reports as low as they are, anyone with an “I Voted” sticker should get a year-long reprieve from paying taxes. #four26dc
However you decide to tweet about your voting experience, know that polls are open until 8 p.m. Tuesday. If you have a problem or a question, the District of Columbia Board of Elections and Ethics — @DCBOEE — is actively directing traffic on Twitter.
