D.C. Voters Will Be Asked to Vote on Statehood

Thanks to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News for this point.

The November 8 ballot in the District of Columbia will ask voters if they wish D.C. to become a State.

The measure was put on the ballot by the City Council.

It proposes splitting D.C. into two areas, one that would include the bulk of the City, which would become the State, and then a smaller Federal District that would include important National Government buildings and would not be part of the proposed State.

Some proponents of Statehood oppose the measure because it seems to give too much power to the City Council to draft a proposed Constitution for the proposed State.
