As District voters flock to the polls today, they are reminded that the best time to casts their votes is between now and 2 p.m. They are also reminded that if they are in line in the District by 8 p.m., by law, they still have the right to vote.
With hundreds of people already having voted at every precinct across the city, the lines are expected to get much longer after people leave work this evening. In addition to voting for president, District voters are also voting for several members of the D.C. Council as well as responding to ballot questions that pertain to ethics of elected officials.
Meanwhile, in what has been tagged one of the closest and most expensive presidential races in history, President Barack Obama, who voted early, is spending his day in Chicago. His Republican contender Mitt Romney, cast his vote this morning in Massachusetts.
