A polling place at a messianic Christian center in New York was changed after Orthodox Jewish voters protested. Jewish voters complained to the city's Board of Elections after the Life in Messiah evangelical group's building was announced as a polling place for four election districts from Midwood in Brooklyn, according to the New York Daily News. The voters said their strict adherence to Jewish law would not allow them to enter the building.
