Description
A poster asking citizens to vote "YES" for DC Home Rule. In 1973 Washington, DC was granted the ability to govern themselves with certain governmental powers being carried out by elected officials. Congress oversees the District and can overturn decisions made by the elected officials. A long standing issue is lack of representation in Congress.
