DCist is liveblogging the Senate’s hearing on the DC voting rights bill right now. For those of us at work who can’t really follow on C-SPAN, this is helpful. I’ll be watching with baited breath, it’s such a travesty that DC residents have been denied their rights as US citizens for so long, and I do hope that the Senate will move to give Eleanor Holmes Norton the ability to vote in the House of Representatives. Sure, I’d like full representation, but it’s something.
The Senate will vote whether to discuss the bill around 11 am, and then may move to vote on the bill at 5 pm. I’m hoping for good news for DC residents.
