This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the D.C. Board of Election encouraged everyone to request a mail ballot to vote, but some polls were still available Tuesday for people who preferred to vote in person.

Those who voted on-site also had to deal with a curfew put in place due to widespread protests over the killing of George Floyd under Minneapolis police custody last week.

Voters and poll workers were exempt from D.C.’s curfew that went into effect at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Videos on social media showed voters lined up Tuesday night outside polling places waiting to vote.

Early Wednesday, the Associated Press announced former Vice President Joe Biden won the D.C. Democratic presidential primary.
