Voters in Virginia can already cast their ballots at early-voting centers across the state, now through Oct. 31, with additional early-voting sites opening in mid-October in many counties and cities. In-person, early-voting facilities won’t open in Maryland until Monday, Oct. 26 and in the District until Tuesday, Oct. 27.

The Washington Post newsroom has created the map below to list places voters can drop off ballots in the Washington region or cast a ballot before Election Day. The map will update in the coming weeks with additional locations.

The map shows early-voting sites and ballot dropoff sites for Virginia, Maryland and D.C.
