Request to be an
Dear Secretary Herman and Mr. Roosevelt:
Attached please find DC’s application to conduct its presidential preference contest in the “pre-window” period as a caucus state.
There are compelling reasons to grant this request:
3. We have the experience of funding combination primary/caucus election processes since the allowance of partial home rule in 1974.
4. Not being allowed full voting rights, we hold the few we have as precious. We can be a model for the nation.
For all these reasons and more, we humbly apply for pre-window Presidential preference status.
