Portable Polling Places -- A Query
Does anybody remember these?
Local historians are trying to gather information about these portable sheds, which were used in the past as polling places during elections. Here is the text of their request:
Help! The Heritage Society of Erie County is looking for information about two metal buildings that have been donated to the group. They are currently being restored to use in the Heritage display at the Erie County Fairgrounds. All we know at this time is that one member remembers having voted in one in 1949 in the city of Sandusky. Neither the Board of Elections nor the Sandusky Library have been able to provide any further details.
If you have knowledge of these buildings, please contact Janet Senne (419-625-4341) or Donna Dahs (419-359-1520). If no answer, leave a message on the answering machine.
