Play associated audio

By Rebecca Blatt

Time is running out to register to vote in the November 2nd elections.

In Maryland and Virginia, voter registration forms must be postmarked by Tuesday, October 12th. That's also the deadline to update voter information.

In D.C. the deadline to register by mail has already passed. But voters can still register in person at the Board of Elections and Ethics headquarters or at any precinct once polls open.

One polling location is set to open for early voting October 18th, four more will open on October 23rd, and the rest will be open on election day.
