A PSA for Independent Voters in D.C.
Posted at 11:39 a.m. on April 1
District voters registered as “no party” who turn out to the polls today may be offered the chance to cast a provisional ballot, but it probably won’t be counted.
Those who are not registered as a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian or D.C. Statehood Green Party member “wouldn’t be able to vote today,” D.C. Board of Elections spokeswoman Tamara L. Robinson said Tuesday.
The deadline to change party registration was March 4.
Local voters who wish to register or update their information can apply for same-day registration at their local polling place on primary day, but party changes are not allowed after the deadline. Registration applicants must present proof of residence, such as a driver’s license, paycheck, lease, utility bill or bank statement showing an address in the District.
All 143 polling precincts will be open until 8 p.m. tonight. Those who aren’t sure where to vote can find there location by entering their home address on the BOE site.
Check Roll Call tonight for primary results.
