    It's only in California that we don't vote in schools
    Polling locations are much more prevalent than schools in California and are located throughout neighborhoods. Of course, schools can be used only if they have an empty classroom or a gym/auditorium that is unused on that day.

    In any town or city voters don't have to travel far at all -- often within blocks -- to vote. Schools are often used, as are churches, garages, fire stations, empty storefronts, community centers -- most any place that is accessible and where the owner offers the use for the day. My polling place was in a school for over 30 years; I moved, staying within the same zip code, and now vote in a church.
