Eligible voters in the June 19, 2018 Primary Election:
DC has closed primary elections. This means that only voters who are registered may vote for a candidate within the same party. In overwhelmingly Democratic DC, the candidate that wins the Democratic primary is likely to win in the general election.
Eligible voters NOT registered in the District of Columbia can register and declare their party affiliation during Early Voting or on Election Day. All eligible voters may cast ballots in support of or against Initiative Measure Number 77, regardless of party affiliation status.
Initiative Measure Number 77 – District of Columbia Minimum Wage Amendment Act of 2017:
If enacted, this initiative will gradually increase the minimum wage in the District of Columbia to $15 hourly by 2020; gradually increase the minimum wage for tipped employees so that they receive the same minimum wage directly from their employer as other employees by 2026; Beginning in 2021, require minimum wage to increase yearly in proportion to increases in the consumer price index. The minimum wage increases under the initiative will not apply to DC government employees or employees of DC government contractors.
