You still may be stuck with taxation without representation, but hey, at least you've got early voting, right?

D.C. residents can now head to the polls, as early voting has started in the District. Polls will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day until October 30.

Early voting will be held at the D.C. Board of Elections headquarters on 4th Street NW.

Starting Saturday, October 23, four more early voting sites will open.  Those locations are:

  • Chevy Chase Community Center Recreation Room
    5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW
  • Hine Junior High School Auditorium
    335 8th Street, SE
  • Southeast Tennis and Learning Center Round Room
    701 Mississippi Avenue, SE
  • Turkey Thicket Recreation Center Meeting Room                                                                                                                                       1100 Michigan Avenue, NE

D.C. residents can vote for mayor, U.S. representative and several seats on the D.C. Council, among other things.

In Maryland, early voting centers will be open starting Friday October 22, through Thursday, October 28, except for Sunday, October 24 when early voting centers are closed.  More info here.

Virginia does not have early voting.  It does have absentee voting.  There are more than 18 different categories by which a voter could apply and qualify to vote absentee. Go to the Virginia Board of Elections site to find the reasons listed.
