WCF Reader: Why Do I Have to Vote in a Mormon Wardhouse?

Your Blogmeister's Advice: Just vote there and hold your nose

By CJ:

Good Morning,

Do you know why they have changed my voting place from Polk School to the **()()&(*&&*^(^&T&* LDS Meeting House on 27th?

I have no desire to set foot in ANY LDS building. I'm greatly offended and don't know where to start complaining.

I'm not exactly sure about this except that I went to a website to "pledge to vote" for a state wide school competition and the information came up there. 

WCF Blogmeister Addendum: Here's the earlier ( possibly-lame) explanation, CJ, via the Standard-Examiner, for what it's worth:
Just go there and cast your vote, CJ. And just hold your nose, if necessary. And report any perceived insults you might find there to Tom Monson, err... my bestest GOP buddy Ricky Hatch, at the Weber County Elections office!

If you have to call "Ricky" at  399-8400 for whatever reason, tell him his good buddy Rudi sent ya's.

Why would anyone be offended? It wouldn't bother me to go to any church willing to volunteer its location for voting. But if it's really a major problem for him, there's always early voting. That's what I plan to do.

 Anyone who has watch town meetings for the last several decades has watched much official state business conducted on Congregational Churches of New Hampshire and Vermont. Amish Halls of Pennsylvania, etc, etc. It's just a large hall offered for public business. You will not be harmed by entering..get over it!

Must be one of those people just looking to be offended! Get over it and vote by mail.

Were LDS meetings halls the only churchs considered to be used as voting locations? Why did Ogden stop using fire stations as voting locations? To those who say 'get over it" I say get over being offended when people question using LDS churches as voting locations. People have every right to question location of  where they cast their ballot.

My voting place was changed from the Ice Sheet to a Baptist Church.  Equal opportunity, I guess.

Guess I should track down where I need to go to vote

Locating polling placrs on any church property is not a good idea, especially if thete are public buildings close by that are available, as is the case in this instance. Voting is a public function, and a findamental one. There'd have to be a pretty compelling reason to convince me opening polling places on church properties --- any church ---- is a good idea.

I'm LDS but I voted in a Lutheran church last time.  It wasn't bad at all.  Nobody tried to baptize me or anything.
