Please help me with vocab.
Does the word " electoral commission " means the place where you go to vote in the elections ?
The answer may depend upon the polity being discussed.
In the United States, you go to vote in a "polling place." The Electoral Commission was a temporary body established by Congress to oversee the disputed Presidential election of 1876. Today, the Secretary of State of each state is responsible for election oversight and, in most states, the County Registar of Voters is delegated to manage the details of the election on a county-by-county basis.
Both the United Kingdom and Australia utilize Election Commissions to oversee elections. Other democracies may as well.
