The voter registration deadline for the September 12 Primary Election is Monday, August 14. Citizens who are District of Columbia residents can register to vote at the Board’s office, by a mail-in voter registration application, online at the Board’s web site, or when applying for or renewing their driver’s licenses at the District of Columbia Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

The Board’s office will be open during regular business hours from 8:30 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. on August 14 for citizens to complete a voter registration application in Room 250 North of the One Judiciary Square building located at 441 4th Street, NW. The building is accessible and conveniently situated along Metro’s Red Line at the Judiciary Square stop.

Citizens may register by mail. Mail-in voter applications are available at any District of Columbia public library, firehouse, or police station. Mail-in voter applications must be postmarked no later than August 14 to be valid for next month’s Primary Election. The application is also available online at the Board’s web site at
