Lando Lincoln: Cythraul: I guess I'm one of the few who has a problem with Churches being used as polling places.Like the stupid banners are going to change someone's minds right at the last minute?
clane: Cythraul: I guess I'm one of the few who has a problem with Churches being used as polling places.

Firethorn: I'm not religious, I'm fairly hostile to 'organized religion' as a personal matter. Despite this, as long as they follow certain rules I have no problems with using them as polling places. It can be hard finding local areas that are suited for the purpose, and churches can fill the role very well in that they're normally fairly big and open buildings that can handle quite a few people, yet are mostly empty on polling days.

But it's done all over the place in the South East, and no one else seems to have a problem with it.I don't like it either, and never have. But then, I strongly dislike having to enter a church for any reason. I almost never go to weddings for that reason, unless they're held in someone's back yard or on the beach.You don't like it, but you don't shy away from voting just because of the surroundings, right?Nope, I don't shy away. I just grit my teeth, sort of. But I've voted in every single national and state election since I turned 21, which was in 1965. (I confess to having passed on a few run-offs for municipal judges, though. . . .)
