Abstract

During elections, churches often act as voting sites – they are common and often centrally placed within most American communities. But does voting in a church building influence the way that people vote? Using evidence from survey research, Jordan P. LaBouff finds that church voting promotes more conservative attitudes in voters on issues ranging from immigration to tax policy. He argues that with this in mind, selecting more neutral community sites for polling places would better serve the public.
