Please help me with vocab.


Does the word " electoral commission " means the place where you go to vote in the elections ?

No.  A commission is a government body.  In the US, you go to a "polling place" or "the polls."

Be careful. In the United States, we have a tradition of bringing the election to the people by voting in neighborhood polling places -- often in churches, schools, fraternal halls, etc. However, in other countries, voters may be asked to go to a government building -- perhaps the offices of the Election Commission -- to vote. This may be especially true in emerging democracies that do not yet have a tradition of voting nor a infrastructure to facilitate voting.
