  • My polling place is at a church. I thought that was pretty odd considering there is suppose to be some separation, somewhere.
  • I voted in the back room of the bar down the street for almost 10 years. Now my polling place is a homeless shelter.
  • I vote in a bowling alley.
  • That first picture was awesome. The folks should know how to operate a voting machine from all the practice on the video poker machines the rest of the year.

    /i miss my video poker at the American Legion
  • I think a couple here in Boca are in lifegaurd stations on the beach.
  • I vote at my local police station
  • What's wrong with a bowling alley? I just voted in a VFW post. They smell the same, anyway.  Bar wasn't open, boo hoo.

    Renting space for an event isn't exactly influencing the process.
  • I voted at an elementary school. It has a copy of the Declaration of Independence hanging near the door. That made me happy, seeing those familiar old signatures as I walked in to the polls.

    Mine too. Pisses me off every time I vote. Moreover, when I first moved to town and followed the "vote here" signs, it sent me to the actual sanctuary, rather than the church gym. I had to ask the church secretary, the only human in the main part of the church, for directions to get to the right building. I imagine that this leads to 1) people becoming frustrated and leaving before they get to vote and 2) being misdirected by the snotty church secretary if they "look like Democrats." I have expressed concern about this to multiple officials and I STILL do not understand why they can't use the local school gym instead. The answer I keep getting is, "this is where we've always voted." Bad answer.
  • Our voting place is "Mike's Video and Appliance" and you vote in front of the washing machines and refrigerators. Kind of weird.

    Here's a 2010 Link
  • My polling station has been the ground floor of my building for the past few elections at all levels. I've voted in my socks.

    Did they jam the tabulating machine?
  • I lol'ed at District 2, Carthage, Tenn.

    /don't blame me, I voted for Clyde.

    Only the crusty one.

    /gotta go
  • I have to drive past a polling place to get to my polling place. kinda odd.
  • Quick question since this is a voting themed thread, went to vote this morning, and noticed the electronic voting machine's password was 1234, asked the lady about it and she said "yea I think they all are in this town". Wtf? Doesn't that sound like a problem that no one cares?
  • I vote in a garage at one of the houses in town. Of course, when the town only has 500 people living in it, that sort of thing happens. At least it's not at one of the 4 churches in town.

    1. Church gymnasiums aren't terrible busy on Tuesday mornings.
    2. Schools are
  • Great photos!

    Sadly, I voted early, I expected to be out of town today.

    Election day is a big deal for me.
  • If I had to vote next to Street Fighter I'd be saying "HADOUKEN" every time I made a selection.

    It certainly could be depending on what access that password gives. I'd report it right now if I were you.

    Mike's Video and Appliance! I remember that place. Had no idea there was a polling station there on Election Day.

    When the daughter was in elementary school, our polling place was there. The polling center was set up in the gym, and she said that the gym teacher was actually trying to hold class around the stations. Can you imagine trying to vote and getting hit by a basketball mid-vote?

    Upon hearing that, the person in the next booth would be within their rights to yell "TETSUMAKISENPUUKYAKU".
