ANC Finder explains ANCs
What is an ANC?
Washington DC is divided into 40 districts called Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, or ANCs.
ANCs are made up of 2-12 commissioners who make decisions about a broad range of issues in your community, such as liquor licenses, parking, and sanitation.
This is your most local form of government.
Single Member Districts
Each commissioner on an ANC represents a division of Washington DC called a Single Member District, or SMD. Commissioners each represent about 2,000 DC residents who live in the SMD.
You elect your ANC commissioner every two years in non-partisan elections. (ANC Finder’s What is an ANC?)
