The 2018 Washington, D.C., mayoral election took place on November 6, 2018 to elect the Mayor of the District of Columbia. Incumbent Democrat Muriel Bowser won re-election, becoming the first Mayor to do so for Washington, D.C. since Anthony A. Williams won a second term in 2002.

In the first 80 days of her re-election campaign, Bowser raised about $1.4 million for her campaign fund.[1] She had no serious challengers in the primary,[2] with only some little-known candidates filing to run against her.[3] Bowser won the June 19 primary with 80% of the vote.
