Reconsidering schools as polling places in the U.S.

There was an interesting story circulating over the weekend in many newspapers from the AP, discussing how in many states school officials are reconsidering the use of their facilities as polling places. Here’s the story, “Some schools want to stop serving as voting sites.”

This reminded me that Thad Hall and I have written about similar concerns over the years. For example, interested readers might want to take a look at this piece that Thad wrote on October 19, 2008 (yes, that is 2008!!!!), “Schools and voting.”
