Early voting is open in 13 locations across the District.

It's now easier to cast a ballot in this year's D.C. mayoral primary. The city has opened up a dozen more early voting centers across the city.

This year the city's board of elections also set up a webpage showing the approximate wait times at each of the 13 early voting centers. The website also lists the addresses for the early voting locations.

Voters can cast a ballot at one of the early voting centers between 8:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Residents who are not registered to vote in D.C. will be able to use same-day registration to cast a ballot at any of the early voting centers. Residents can also update their addresses at these locations. The deadline, however, has passed for currently registered voters to change their party affiliations — which means only registered Democrats, for example, will be able to vote in the Democratic mayoral primary.

The early voting centers will be until Saturday. After that, voters will have to cast a ballot at their polling precincts on Election Day, which is next Tuesday April 1.

For more information on the candidates on this year's primary ballot, check out the WAMU Voter Guide.
