Tuesday marks the deadline to register to vote in D.C. by mail for the Nov. 6 election.

Voter registration applications must be postmarked no later than Oct. 9. The forms — which are also used to update a change of address — can be found online at the board of elections' website or at any public library, police station, or firehouse.

The last day to register in-person at the board of elections headquarters is Friday, October 19.

D.C. has same-day registration, so residents who miss the deadline will be able to register and cast ballots at polling precincts on election day and at early voting centers, but they will be marked and counted as special ballots.

Early voting in D.C., meanwhile, starts Oct. 22nd.
