Early voting hours in D.C. have been extended to 9 p.m.

The District's early-voting polling locations have been shut down all week because of Hurricane Sandy. So, starting Friday, the polls will now close at 9 p.m., giving voters an extra two hours to cast a ballot.

The city has opened up an early voting center in each of the eight wards, but elections officials say voters can use any of the locations to cast a ballot; it does not have to be in a voter's home ward.

On Election Day, however, voters will need to go to their specific polling precinct. Early voting in D.C. closes on Saturday.
