Serving as a polling site is a unique use for a building, only occurring on a few days each year. Though architects design polling sites, they do so indirectly, rarely knowing that a school or house of worship they design will become a polling site. Even those who operate polling sites only do so for a few days each year, and voters utilizing polling sites also have few interactions with them as such. This presents a unique set of challenges for architects, civil servants, elected officials, and attorneys to ensure that the place in which voting occurs is functioning well. Though often overlooked, the location, design, and operation of polling sites significantly affects how voters participate in elections.
