Efforts to provide voting options beyond in-person balloting have increased over the years to encourage greater turnout.

In February 2020, I introduced the B23-0963 - Voter Mobile App Amendment Act of 2020 ([link removed]) to amend the District of Columbia Election Code of 1955 to clarify voting by mobile application in elections.

I worked with my council colleagues to make this bill stronger. I supported Ward 2 Councilmember Brooke Pinto's "Mobile Voting Options for Turnout Equity Amendment Act of 2022" ([link removed]) by co-introducing this legislation along with Chairman Phil Mendelson and Councilmembers Brianne K. Nadeau, Christina Henderson, Robert C. White, Jr., Anita Bonds, and Vincent C. Gray.

The purpose of this legislation is to make voting more accessible by allowing District voters to securely cast digital absentee ballots from a smartphone, tablet, or computer, beginning in 2024.

There will be no need to wait in long lines or use a voter mailbox - mobile voting is safe and secure. As with in-person voting, a mobile voting system would verify a voter's identity, signature, eligibility, and voter registration and ensure that no more than one ballot is counted for each voter.

Offering a mobile voting system will reduce voting barriers facing our residents and provide a new way to cast a safe, secure, and counted ballot.

DDOT Deploying Automated Traffic Enforcement Cameras to New Locations

(Washington, DC) — Today, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced the planned installation of automated traffic enforcement cameras to new locations throughout the District. The camera locations are traffic sites where data analysis has identified speeding and stop sign running as safety issues.

Once Photo Enforced signs are installed in the direction of travel within at least 100 to 150 feet of the approach of the location, a 30-day educational phase will start for each camera installation. During this period, violators will receive warning citations. After the 30-day warning period, DDOT will begin issuing notices of infraction with fines that will range from $100 to $500 based on excess of the speed limit to violators.

The new photo enforcement cameras will be installed in March 2022; their locations and type are as follows:

DDOT encourages drivers to register for the District's Ticket Alert Service (TAS). To learn more about TAS, visit: ([link removed]) .

While the city’s poverty rate of 15% is higher than the 13.4% national ([link removed]) average, in 2019 the poverty rate for Black residents was ([link removed]) 21.6 percent, four times higher than white D.C. residents.

Councilman Trayon White ([link removed]) (D-Ward 8) is a native Washingtonian from Southeast D.C. and a national and local leader who has positive memories growing up in the city but understands D.C. ‘s complexities.

“I always say there are three Washington D.C.’s – there’s a part of the city that has significant amounts of money, resources and connectivity; there’s a part of the city people see when they visit for a temporary stay; and there’s a part of the city that’s plagued ([link removed]) with inequality, violence, poor school systems, potholes and despair,” Councilman White said.
