Voters are casting their ballots at the board's headquarters on 4th Street in northwest D.C. That location is open 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day except Sunday until Oct. 30 and on the day before elections from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Four other early voting centers will open on Saturday, Oct. 23.

Voters are casting ballots to select a new mayor, D.C. Council chairman and members of the city council.
