Full Democracy for DC

DC residents seek full democracy for DC since 1982 and today, Mayor Muriel Bowser continues the fight to secure full democracy for DC because it is the most appropriate mechanism to grant U.S. citizens, who reside in the District of Columbia, the full rights and privileges of American citizenship. These rights would include not only full voting rights in the US House of Representatives and US Senate, but also full control over its own local affairs.

DC elects a Delegate to the House of Representatives who does not have full voting rights. The current Delegate is Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton.
