My polling place is a small church a block from my house. No bicycle parking anywhere in sight. There is a railing that leads to the chuch basement (where the polls are actually set up) that could be used for bike parking, but that sidewalk is where the irritating activists stand, and the railing is usually buried under campaign signs. If I cycles over, I’d probably just ask one of them to watch it. I’ve never spent more than five minutes in my polling place when voting. (Have stayed longer for the yummy fund raising dinners, but that happens on another day.)
My polling place is also in a church basement, nothing to lock to at all. There is a stop sign at one end of the road, but it came right out of the ground when I gave it a tug. I wouldn’t trust the activist people to watch it, even though they always offer.
Friendship Montessori School. No bike rack. I requested one with the poll workers knowing full well that it would probably change nothing. I now have a good contact at PPS and hopefully he will be able to address this.
My polling place was recently featured in the Tag-O-Rama thread! No bike racks, but street signs, railings, and that bollard. Riding a bike there would be gratuitous, though, since I can see it from my apartment window.
Morningside, some Senior Center that I didn’t even know existed until I showed up at the poll. Joe Napotoli? Field or something. Not much around, used a stop sign (shook it after Dwillian’s story) and I knocked over a candidate yard sign with my pannier, but fixed it
Lafferty Hill School (well at least it used to be, ‘Burgh thing again). No racks, but the mayor personnaly watched it for me – now that’s service. Mayor Bennet also said I was the second biker there today!
