What's an ANC? 

The Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, or ANC, is a non-partisan, neighborhood body made up of locally elected representatives. Washington DC is divided into 40 districts and each ANC is made up of of 2-12 commissioners who make decisions about a broad range of issues in the community including transportation, planning and zone, and alcohol and beverage licenses. Each ANC commissioner is elected for a two-year term and represents a distinct segment of the ANC, called a Single Member District, or SMD. Each Commissioner represents about 2,000 residents of that SMD.
