Early Voting Sites to Reopen Wednesday October 31 with Extended Hours
DC BOARD OF ELECTIONS ANNOUNCES EARLY VOTING SITES WILL REOPEN OCTOBER 31
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The District of Columbia Board of Elections will resume early voting on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 and will extend voting hours until 9:00 P.M. at each early voting location. The Board has added extra voting equipment at each of its locations to accommodate the anticipated heavy turnout.
The Board’s decision to extend the hours of operation will accommodate voters who were unable to vote due to long lines on Saturday and closures due to Hurricane Sandy. Hours of operation at each early voting site will be from 8:30 A.M. until 9:00 P.M., Wednesday through Saturday. Polling places on Election Day, Tuesday November 6, will be open from 7:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M.
“We want to ensure that every voter has the opportunity to cast a ballot in this General Election. We have added extra voting machines at every vote center and extended the hours of operation”, said Clifford D. Tatum, the Board’s Executive Director. “We also want to remind voters that if there are long lines at the Early Vote Center in their home ward, that they can go to any other early voting site to cast a ballot in shorter lines, or can go to their polling place on November 6.”
Citizens are encouraged to visit the Board’s website, www.dcboee.org, to monitor the status of early voting sites.
