This is my polling place, which also happens to be a local community center. I’ve always wondered what was happening there on every other day of the year, but their website provided very few answers. For a full week, Ari and I dropped by on different days at different times to get to the bottom of it.

The full community center campus, including outdoor fields and courts, a fire station, the indoor facility, and a community garden.
