Eager-beaver voters lined up this morning at One Judiciary Square to be among the first to cast their ballot in early voting for the Sept. 14 primary.

The voting kick-off turned into a campaign pep-rally for supporters of various campaigns. An unidentified supporter of Mayor Adrian Fenty, armed with a megaphone, was escorted from the scene when he reportedly interrupted a rally for D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray, currently leading the mayor in the final sprint to the Democratic nomination.

The first person to cast a ballot was D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics Director Rokey Suleman.

DCBOEE will be updating One Judiciary Square voting wait times on its website. (It’s currently about a 40-minute wait.)

So, how does this whole early voting process work? That’s one question we answered on Friday with “Dear Votemaster,” a blog series on Loose Lips where we’ll be exploring issues related to the voting process. We’ll be answering additional questions in the run-up to the Sept. 14 primary.
