Easter Sunday means business as usual for District of Columbia elections officials.

The board's offices will be open for voters to cast absentee ballots for Tuesday's special election.

Voters are choosing a new at-large D.C. Council member. Nine candidates are vying for the seat vacated by Kwame Brown when he was elevated to Council chairman. Two seats on the State Board of Education are also up for grabs.

The board made absentee voting available Sunday because the election is being held on the last day of Passover. Observant Jewish voters had voiced concerns that they could not cast ballots on Tuesday or make it to the Board's offices on Saturday to vote absentee.

The offices at One Judiciary Square will be open from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
