    D.C., Nation Head to Polls Early


    VOTE: Holly Gerberich, owner of a Washington advertising agency, jetted into the voting booths early at Malcolm X Elementary School in southeast Washington.  Gerberich, founder of Gerberich Growth Strategies, wanted to make sure she cast her vote and wasn’t going to let anything get in the way.  “I came to vote early for convenience,” she said. “I’ll be traveling for work right up until the day before election day and I just don’t feel like dealing with all of that.”  Gerberich is one of thousands of Washington-area residents and millions of voters across the nation who are going to the polls early to cast their ballots for either Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton or Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. About 23 million Americans have already cast their votes in the presidential election, according to election officials.  As of Tuesday night, more than 58,000 Washington residents had cast their ballots, with the largest turnout, more than 18,000 voters, at One Judiciary Square polling site in northwest D.C. not far from the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
