D.C.'s Brightwood neighborhood voting on recall

Tuesday - 2/28/2012, 11:55am  ET

WASHINGTON - 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.
