Many Americans vote at schools; others at churches or community centers. But a bowling alley?
That's where some folks in North Dakota cast their votes Tuesday. In Mandan, the Kingpin Lounge at the Midway Lanes was transformed into a polling place.
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp voted there with her son, Nathan. She says she's been voting at the alley for years and doesn't think it's odd at all.
In Iowa, some voters cast their ballots at a log cabin and maintenance shed.
The Des Moines Register says the log cabin was built in 1937 from native hardwoods from Polk City. And in the tiny town of Berkley in Boone County, the shed-turned-polling-center has a voting table and booths set up where the snow plow is usually parked.
