Founded in 1998, DC Vote is a national advocacy organization dedicated to strengthening and securing equality for all who call DC home. DC Vote works to end taxation without representation for the people of DC, organizing locally and around the country. We envision a fairer America where every one of the 700,000 DC residents have the right to participate in the democracy like every other jurisdiction in the US, controlling our budget, passing our laws without Congressional interference, and having full and equal representation in the US House of Representatives and the US Senate.
