Thousands of District voters have already cast early ballots in this year's primaries. Elections officials say voters are taking advantage of the Labor Day weekend for early voting in Washington.
Officials opened up four new early voting locations in the District during the weekend and said more than 3,300 voters showed up to cast ballots.
The centers re-open today following a day-off Sunday, and early birds can cast their ballot on this Labor Day, from 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The Board of Elections and Ethics executive director said wait times have not exceeded 15 minutes at any location.
