West Lafayette

A group from China stopped in Lafayette and other parts of the state this week to see how voting in the United States works.

The program was hosted by Purdue’s Center on Religion and Chinese Society.

Director Fenggang Yang  says many were impressed with the organization of the election system.

“Many of the poll centers are in churches or local communities and they didn't see police around the poll center and that impressed them," he said.  "They were very impressed by the self organization of the local communities.”
