Today is election day in our campaign to elect Batwoman the first crime-fighting lesbian Jewish mayor of DC!

Vote Batwoman for DC Mayor

Voting is today until 6pm EDT. You can vote from anywhere in the world.

Batwoman on why she is running for mayor:

'I have spent the majority of my life focused on building stronger communities, fighting violent crime and corruption and advocating equality for all residents,' says Batwoman. 'My father instilled in me the values of hard work and commitment to service. I have taken those lessons I learned as a girl and have applied them to my adult life as a crime-fighting super hero.'


Batwoman was the first candidate to issue a statement on the new DC marriage recognition law and she is committed to winning full marriage equality.

Other issues critical to Batwoman include:

  • Universal health care so that everyone can see a doctor when they need to
  • Quality education for all young people
  • Safe neighborhoods free from violent crime
  • The DREAM Act which will increase the number of immigrant young people who are able to attend college
  • An end to government corruption

Voting is online and the polls are open until 6pm EST. You do not have to live in DC to vote.

Because we need a crime-fighting lesbian Jewish mayor,
