Churches fill gap on election day

LANSING — Some voters who would rather not darken the door of a church will be out of luck Nov. 8 in many communities. Places with a lot of people in a small area often can’t put all their voters in just one building, said Ed Golembiewski, chief deputy clerk and director of elections in Washtenaw County. So some city, township and county clerk offices find churches with enough space to accommodate voters. “I don’t know what we’d do without churches,” said Joan Runyan, elections coordinator in Livingston County.
