The early voting for the Nov. 2 election began at 6 a.m. The D.C. Board of Elections says 16 people were waiting in line when the polls opened.

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.
