Vote to recall ANC commissioner Douglas Smith set

WASHINGTON (AP) - Approximately 2,000 voters in northwest Washington are eligible to vote in a recall election of a local official.

Tuesday's vote will be held at a police station in the city's Brightwood neighborhood.

Voters are being asked whether Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Douglas Smith should keep his seat.

Smith says the recall is unfair and that a small group of people are disgruntled about a Wal-Mart planned for the neighborhood.

Smith says he has been trying to represent residents on all sides of the issue.
