    There are only 15 days left until the election, but D.C. residents can start voting right now. Early voting runs in the District from Oct. 22 to Nov. 3.

    Where to vote? Today, all D.C. voters can cast a ballot at One Judiciary Square, 441 4th Street, NW.

    Starting Oct. 27 through Nov. 3, D.C. voters can stop in at a specific, and hopefully more convenient, location in their ward, anytime from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. (NOTE: If you live in Ward 2, your voter location is at One Judiciary Square.)

    Ward 1 -- Columbia Heights Community Center
    1480 Girard Street, NW

    Ward 3 -- Chevy Chase Community Center
    5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW

    Ward 4 -- Takoma Community Center
    300 Van Buren Street, NW

    Ward 5 -- Turkey Thicket Recreation Center
    1100 Michigan Avenue, NE

    Ward 6 -- King Greenleaf Recreation Center
    201 N Street, SW

    Ward 7 -- Dorothy Height/Benning Library
    3935 Benning Road, NE - Map

    Ward 8 -- Southeast Tennis and Learning Center
    701 Mississippi Avenue, SE

    Maryland and Virginia also allow early voting -- sort of!

    In Maryland, residents can start voting early on Oct. 27, no excuse needed. In Virginia, registered voters may cast an in-person absentee ballot ahead of the election, but they must first apply to do so. More information here.
