About the Project


When most Americans think about a polling place, a high school gym or a local church springs to mind.

But not in many places in the United States.

In many municipalities, polling places are tucked away in some unexpected locations — such as private homes, bars and auto repair shops.

This project is a look at some of the more interesting places where Americans practice their Democratic rights.


I’m interested in adding cities, and other municipalities, to this project. So, If you’re aware of any interesting polling places, anywhere in the United States or abroad, please let me know. Email me by using the “Contact” button on the left.
