Cleveland Heights Residents must Vote in a Church

This is an issue which will greatly effect the Orthodox Community of Cleveland Heights. Most of them will not vote for entering a church is not allowed under their halachic code. There are other locations in the neighborhood which can host a voting place. There are organizations that are protesting and we will keep you updated on this issue as it develops.

Is it assur to enter the lobby area to vote?

A local Rabbi issued this judgement:

Really it is not in the church but in the social hall and therefore not really assur, but still in our case it may be a chillul Hashem for an entire community to go to the church building, so it should be changed.
