NATIONAL ELECTION RETURNS : State-by-State Election Reports of Key Races and Issues : District of Columbia

As expected, Democrat Michael S. Dukakis easily won the District of Columbia’s three electoral votes for president. Democrats have carried the district, with its overwhelmingly black voting population, all six previous times its residents have voted in presidential elections.

Walter Fauntroy, the city’s non-voting delegate to Congress, also easily kept his seat. The Democrat, a minister and veteran of the civil rights movement, had only token opposition to his bid for the 10th term.
