There is no school in Chicago on Election Day, so there is no worry of people harming school children. Also, this church also, has a school. Terrorism can happen anywhere, so terrorism as a threat is pretty lame. Also, schools are always crawlign with police, even in the suburbs. Most schools have an officer assigned to the school that is there all day.

I agree that terrorism can happen anywhere. I was thinking more along the lines of perverts rather than terrorists.

The fire house is being used by two precients and while driving around my neighboorhood I noticed the other two public schools and the two churches were also polling places. I don't know how this city decides their precient bounds but it's wacked.
