DC residents went to the polls for the June Democratic Primary, voicing their support for the path that the District is currently on by overwhelmingly nominating the incumbents for the November General Election.

In Ward 6, Councilmember Charles Allen also won the nomination on June 19. City-wide race winners include: Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, who has held the non-voting congressional seat since 1991; Mayor Muriel Bowser, who, if elected in November, will become the first mayor since 2002 to win a second term; Chairman Phil Mendelson, who has served as chairman of the DC Council since 2012; Anita Bonds, at-large councilmember, serving on DC Council since December of 2012; and Attorney General Karl Racine, who ran unopposed and was also nominated for the General Election.
