What is a Polling Place?
More than 230,000 polling places were used in the 2018 general election, according to the 2018 Election Administration and Voting Survey (EAVS) report released by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). The EAC also reported that less than 1% of those locations were election offices—the vast majority of polling places were at other sites, such as schools or churches. Source
