The election is Tuesday, November 3.
Find out where the candidates stand.
The election this November will be the most important one of our lifetimes. And, because of the pandemic, it will be like no other. The Board of Elections is mailing ballots to every registered voter in the District. So, DC Action for Children invited all candidates running for the at-large and ward two seats on the DC Council and the at-large State Board of Education seat to complete our voter education questionnaire.
Use this guide to learn where the candidates stand on issues facing children, youth, and families. Remember, one way to pursue fundamental change is by exercising your right to vote.
Listen to our conversation with candidates for the At-Large Council race.
Learn where Councilmember Robert White, Marcus Goodwin, Christina Henderson and Ed Lazere stand on the key issues before casting your vote for the At-Large Council race. We invited the four candidates with the highest number of individual DC donors based on publicly available filings to participate.

We're shaping fair and equitable public policy for all of DC's children and youth.
DC Action for Children is a nonprofit, nonpartisan child and youth advocacy organization dedicated to using research, data, and a lens toward race equity to break down barriers that stand in the way of all kids reaching their full potential. DC Action for Children and DC Alliance of Youth Advocates recently merged to form an even stronger, independent voice for children and youth. DC Action is the home of DC KIDS COUNT, the primary source for data on conditions and outcomes for kids’ well-being. DC Action’s collaborative advocacy campaigns empower young people and all residents to raise their voices to create change.
We head coalitions such as the Home Visiting Council, Under 3 DC, and the Out-of-School Time Network, and participate in many more. By blending our respective areas of focus and unique strengths, we believe we can achieve bigger and bolder outcomes for kids in the District of Columbia.
Questionnaires were sent to all candidates running for the at-large and ward 2 council seats, as well as the at-large State Board of Education seat. Candidates were given the same amount of time to complete their questionnaire. Multiple reminders were sent out with the deadline for response. If a candidate did not return their questionnaire, we noted it in our candidate gallery.
DC Action for Children is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. We are nonpartisan and do not endorse or support any candidate for office. Our voter guide is intended for informational purposes only.
