Precinct in Braeswood neighborhood votes in garage

A precinct in Braeswood votes in a home's garage.

HOUSTON - Many people voted in places like schools, community centers and churches. But what about someone's house?

At the Brodsky's home in Braeswood, Democratic and Republican voters cast their ballots all day Tuesday. It might seem unusual, but Precinct Judge Joanna Brodsky says voting in the area has been happening like this for nearly 30 years. 

Brodsky says they couldn't find a public facility or business to hold the election so she volunteered to do it. There are two schools near the home but they aren't technically in the precinct.

More than 1,100 people were expected to vote in the Brodsky's garage.

Voting for the general election has rotated between the Democratic committee member (Brodsky) and the Republican. For primaries, residents go to the party-specific houses.
