Welcome to Houston's most unique polling places
Tired of schools and churches? If you're looking for a change of pace, why not cast your vote at an ice rink or even a neighbor's garage?

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- For most of us, voting is a pretty standard affair: Show up to a neighborhood school, church or municipal building, cast your ballot and be on your way.

However, if you're looking to vote in a more unique setting, these are Houston's most bizarre picks.

A neighborhood affair

In one Houston neighborhood, voting might as well be a block party. Harris County has designated a private residence on Underwood Street near Braeswood as a polling place. After arriving at the home, voters cast their ballot out of their neighbor's garage.

Time to party!

Houston voters can cast their votes then grab a cold one at BUDDY's Houston.

The coldest polling place in Houston

Grab your jackets, voters in northwest Houston get to cast their ballot at the Aerodrome, a public ice rink that offers skating and hockey.

Aerodrome Room: Party Room 8220 Willow Place Drive North at SH 249 Houston, TX 77070-5671
