24 of the strangest places Americans have voted on Election Day

At least 42 million people have voted early for the 2016 presidential election, and on November 8, millions more will be showing up at the polls. While voting is an inalienable right in the United States, not every town or city has a local elementary school to host people.
As a result, some places have to get creative. Some visit their local car mechanic, laundromat, or pool hall in a testament to the strength of their civic-mindedness.

Here, we’ve rounded up some of the most interesting polling places from past election years.
