More than 20,000 D.C. residents voted in-person on Tuesday, the first day that polls opened for early voting.

That means about 30% of all registered voters in the District have now cast their ballots.

In Maryland, another 153,000 residents voted in-person Tuesday. On Monday, 143,494 voters headed to the polls on the first day of early voting. The swell broke the state’s record for the most early voters in a single day.
