Hard to believe, but after nearly two years of campaigning, we’re just 24 hours away from voting for a new president.
Voter turnout tomorrow is expected to reach record highs â€” so be prepared to spend some time waiting in line at your polling place. Not sure where that is?
Maryland: Polls are open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm. Check your polling place here.
Virginia: Polls are open from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm. Check your polling place here.
District of Columbia: Polls are open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm. Check your polling place here.
(If you live outside the D.C. metro area, go here and choose your state.)
Remember: As long as you’re in line before polls close, you will be allowed to vote.
Not sure when you can get to the polling place? Federal employees are entitled to time off to vote, but only if the polls are not open at least three hours before or after an employee’s regular work hours.
What does that mean for you? Well, if you work a 9-5 schedule, and you live in Maryland or D.C., you’re allowed to show up for work at 10:00 â€” giving you three hours to vote in the morning. If you live in Virginia, though, you don’t get any time off, because the polls open three hours before your work day begins.
