D.C. Election Board Currently Without Quorum

Chairman of the board steps down

View Comments (


    The D.C. election board is down to one member, which could affect September's primary.

    Already down one member for more than a year, Chairman Errol Arthur is stepping down Aug. 2 to take a position as a magistrate judge with D.C. Superior Court, the Washington Examiner reported.

    That means the three-member board needs a new member to reach a quorum to certify the votes in the Sept. 14 primary.

    Errol said he notified the mayor's office last week.
