Polling Place: 47th Ward, 19th and 20th Precincts

SHARE Polling Place: 47th Ward, 19th and 20th Precincts

If I were planning on dealing with the expected record crowds on election day, I’d be voting here at the St Matthias School’s gym. (As it is, I’ll be voting at Welles Park- photos forthcoming!) This is one of many polling places that serves two precincts, so make sure you go to the proper side of the room!


Also, thanks to Gapers Block for writing about this project- and thanks to you for sending in your photos (we’re still waiting for someone to get U Lucky Dawg)!
