Weird Polling Place: LA McDonalds Playroom Serves Hollywood Residents (UPDATE)

This Has Got To Be LA's Weirdest Polling Place

What better way to celebrate democracy than with a romp in the ball playpen?

Some Hollywood residents will be able to do that and cast their vote when they report to the playplace at McDonald's on Western Avenue Tuesday.


After voters finish up, those who voted "no" on Prop 37 will have no qualms with getting in a second line to buy a burger and a milkshake.

We kid, we kid! But seriously, McDonald's isn't the only restaurant that's pulling double duty in the United States this Election Day.

Some Chicago residents will be casting their ballot at taquerias, bars, bistros, cafes and gelato counters.

Across the pond, Bryan Dale described how strange it was to vote in the UK's 2010 elections at a local pub. "It's a bit unusual to have the evening menu on one side of the pub door and a polling station on the other," wrote Dale to BBC. "But what could be better than a pint and a vote?" Other strange polling places in the UK include a 17th Century castle and a hair salon.

As Angelenos make plans to vote for the next President of the United States, take note of your polling station and let us know -- where are you casting your ballot tomorrow?

UPDATE: If McDonald's is LA's weirest polling place, this is the city's most luxurious.

The Luxe Sunset Boulevard hotel is serving a few lucky voters in Brentwood and Bel-Air with complimentary valet parking, free hors d’oeuvres and a voucher for 10 percent off dinner at the hotel's restaurant, On Sunset.
