Voting is an important civic duty. To increase turnout, government seeks to make voting as convenient as possible. Public schools, libraries, city halls and other public spaces are often used as polling places. Some communities also use houses of worship. Americans United believes this is best avoided. Some people are not comfortable voting in churches or have reported inappropriate political messages in churches. If a church is used as a polling place, it should be required to abide by all local laws concerning politicking and the distribution of campaign literature.
