BERGER: Policy makers should definitely pay more attention to where people vote and, if possible, be more careful in the types of places selected. Choosing polling places is already a tough task, though—they need to be centrally located, handicap accessible, et cetera, so we are not arguing to eliminate churches and schools altogether. Rather, if such places are used, there are ways to minimize their potential influence. For example, people should vote in a general multipurpose room rather than a classroom filled with children’s drawings or a church room filled with religious imagery. These steps should help reduce the influence.
