ELECTION: Schools As Voting Places
Obama at Shoesmith Elementary in Chicago.
Do you like it as much as I do that voting often takes place in schools? I think it legitimizes schools and is great people watching, too. (It's almost as fun as report card pickup day.) Lots of folks who go in have never been inside the school -- except maybe the previous year. Sure, it's a lost instructional day, etc. But still. I'd rather them use schools for voting places than not use them. What do you think?
