Early voting begins on Monday, come snow or shine.

Early voting begins today for D.C.'s mayoral primary, but on a delay after this morning's snow storm.

For the next five days, early voting can only take place at the One Judiciary Square building in northwest D.C., which is located at 441 Fourth Street. And at least for Monday, they have a delayed opening at 10 a.m. to accommodate the winter weather.

Then on Saturday March 22, the city will open up a dozen more early voting centers around the city. The centers will be open from 8:30 a.m. in the morning to 7 pm.

While the mayor's race commands most of the attention, there are other important primary elections on the ballot, including the D.C. Council Chairman's seat and half the spots on the D.C. Council.

The city's delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives is also up, as well as the city's shadow representatives on Capitol Hill — these are the elected, unpaid officials who while not technically seated in the house or senate, advocate for voting rights in D.C.

Early voting ends on March 29. Election Day for the primary is April 1.
