Reports of political signs at some church polling places
From MPR News reporter Elizabeth Dunbar:
There were scattered reports from voters who saw signs or messages related to the marriage amendment at churches that were serving as polling places. That included Saint John Vianney in South St. Paul, where a banner that read “Strengthen Marriage, don’t redefine it” could be seen by voters entering the church.
“I was shocked, I didn’t think that would be allowed,” said Ivan Kowalenko, who tweeted a photo of the sign. “II was hearing that you’re not allowed to wear any political slogan of your own, so it doesn’t seem entirely appropriate that a voting venue would be allowed to express an opinion.”
A church official reached shortly after Kowalenko voted said the sign has been removed.
