Washington Mystics guard Natasha Cloud and Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal released a video on Sunday to encourage you to vote. Election Day is tomorrow, November 3.
Early voting is effectively over given that this post is coming out on Monday evening. So here is how you can vote in person tomorrow, if you haven’t already.
If you live in D.C., you can vote from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET tomorrow at a vote center. In person registrations are allowed if you haven’t registered yet.

In addition to regular polling places, there are six super voting centers which can handle people from any DC precinct and can handle a larger number of voters. They are:
- Capital One Arena (Ward 2)
- Omni Shoreham Hotel (Ward 3)
- University of the District of Columbia (Ward 3)
- Dock 5 at Union Market (Ward 5)
- Nationals Park (Ward 6)
- Entertainment and Sports Arena (Ward 8)
Monumental Sports & Entertainment, which owns Capital One Arena, the venue where the Wizards play, opened up the space as a super voting center earlier this year.
The Entertainment and Sports Arena, the venue where the Mystics play, is owned by Events DC, and was originally not designated as a super voting center, but that changed after it was noted that D.C.’s eastern wards (which includes Wards 7 and 8) were without any super voting centers. Cloud also gave such an acknowledgement:
Forreal @MonSportsNet has tried. @TheEventsDC what’s up? How can we make this happen? When we moved into SE we promised this community we would be apart of a solution. Lets not just talk about it....let’s be about it.— Natasha Cloud (@T_Cloud4) September 23, 2020
Nationals Park is also owned by Events DC.
In the State of Maryland, click on this link to find your precinct. You can vote from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET. Like D.C., if you haven’t registered to vote yet, you still can in person.
The major professional sports teams, including the Washington Football Team and Baltimore Orioles, have made their stadiums, FedEx Field and Oriole Park at Camden Yards respectively, super voting centers. You have to be a resident of Prince George’s County to vote at FedEx Field or Baltimore City to do so at Camden Yards.
In the Commonwealth of Virginia, click on this link to find your precinct. You can vote from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET. Virginia doesn’t accept in person registration.
Since there are no major professional teams playing home games in Virginia (the Washington Football Team is headquartered in Loudoun County but don’t play there), there are no super voting centers in Virginia’s D.C. suburbs by the local professional teams.

In all jurisdictions
If you arrive just before closing time at a polling center and are in line, YOU ARE ALLOWED TO VOTE. EXCLAMATION POINT!
