Voting Booth Anywhere

I'm quite fond of my voting place which sits proudly in the garage on the corner 1 block from my house in the Mission. These little voting stations in random homes all over San Francisco ensure that everyone has a convenient place to vote in their neighborhood as citizens volunteer to give away their private space for one Tuesday for the sake of the greater good. In fact when you sign up for your driver's license in SF, the form asks if you would be willing to host a voting place in your residence. It's just one more small example of how we can temporarily make better use of under-utilized space by reprogramming it and opening it up to the public.

Remember to vote today!
