Lining up forty minutes early to cast your choice? Looks like DC is excited about early voting. Via WaPo:
D.C. election officials reported that at 7:50 a.m., about 25 people were already lined up Monday morning to cast their ballots in D.C. — the first time residents have been allowed to vote early in primary elections. Voting was slated to begin at 8:30 a.m…
Today through Friday, voters can cast their ballots at one site — One Judiciary Square, 441 4th Street, N.W. Beginning Saturday, Sept. 4, four additional early voting locations will open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. They are:
- Chevy Chase Community Center, 5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW
- Hine Junior High School, 335 8th Street, SE
- Southeast Tennis and Learning Center, 701 Mississippi Avenue, SE
Turkey Thicket Recreation Center, 1100 Michigan Avenue, NE
That sounds simple enough. Not so simple? Remembering that you can vote on Labor Day but NOT on the set of Sundays which fall on September 5 or 12.
