Early voting begins today in D.C. Voters looking to beat the lines on election day can now cast a ballot at 1 Judiciary Square in downtown D.C.

Voters can go to the Old Council Chambers in the square from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. cast a ballot for the next two weeks leading up to the election.

Starting next Saturday, D.C. will open up seven other early voting centers — one for each ward. Those locations are:

  • >Columbia Heights Community Center
    1480 Girard Street, NW
  • Takoma Community Center
    300 Van Buren Street, NW
  • Chevy Chase Community Center
    5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW
  • Turkey Thicket Recreation Center
    1100 Michigan Avenue, NE
  • King Greenleaf Recreation Center
    201 N Street, SW
  • Dorothy Height/Benning Library
    3935 Benning Rd. NE
  • Southeast Tennis and Learning Center
    701 Mississippi Avenue, SE

Come Nov. 6, D.C. has same-day registration, so residents can 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.
