Where You Vote Changes How You Vote
A Stanford study found that where you vote can influence how you vote. For instance, voting at a school increased support for school funding measures and voting at a church decreased votes for stem cell research.
This Stanford Study on how polling location affected support for a school funding initiative and stem cell research raised some interesting questions for me.
- How can we use location to inspire and encourage people to vote?
- How do current polling locations discourage voting and, as a result, further limit accessibility?
- How do you create a voting environment that is free of bias, neutral and comfortable for voters of all socio-economic backgrounds and diverse beliefs?
