The Center for Inquiry West in Hollywood has been used as a voting location the last couple of years. According to the e-newsletter from CFI West (dated 5 November 2008):
An estimated 2,500 voters filed through the Center yesterday to cast their votes at the three precincts housed there for the historic election. Lines of voters started forming before the polls opened at 7 a.m., and then snaked through the patio and down Hollywood Boulevard throughout the morning. Poll workers, who began setting up their voting equipment at 6 a.m., worked steadily until the polls closed at 8 p.m. By that time, a record-breaking number of more than 80 percent of those eligible voted in Los Angeles County.Here is a picture of the inside.
With a parking lot, handicapped ramp and large lobby space, the Center has been sought after and used for voting during the past several elections. We at the Center are happy to provide space for such an important community event.
