I'm an Independent Voter - Can I Vote in the Primary in Washington DC?

No! Only party registrants can vote in their party primaries (see FairVote) (Also see IndependentVoting.org)

From Washington Post 44

The Washington, D.C. primary features a few interesting races, most notably the Democratic Mayoral primary. As Mike DeBonis, Miranda S. Spivack and Michael Laris explain: 
The main attraction in the city is a heated Democratic mayoral race pitting incumbent Adrian M. Fenty against the D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray. Also on the Democratic ticket, council member Kwame R. Brown (At Large) and former council member Vincent B. Orange Sr. are leading contenders to replace Gray. Democratic voters will also cast ballots in a citywide council race and in four ward races, as well as contested elections for congressional delegate and statehood representative.
Live Updates throughout the day will be appearing on the Washington Post's DC Wire
Latest news: Gray campaign to request longer polling hours at precincts that had problems this morning; Board of Elections responds; Fenty and Gray both have voted (videos); problems held up voting at Sherwood Rec Center.
