Mysterious Signs Appear at Wrightstown Polling Place

Two large signs reading "Please Have Your Photo ID Ready" were placed at the Anchor Run church polling place.

Update: As of 4 p.m. the sign was still up.

OUTSIDE PHILADELPHIA, PA -- Two large signs reading "Please Have Your Photo ID Ready" in all capital letters and neon coloring were placed at a local polling place, despite the fact that an ID is not required to vote in this election.

However, no one is taking responsibility for putting up the signs, which were placed at the entry to the polling line in Wrightstown Township.

For instant update, follow Newtown Patch on Facebook and Twitter.

Susan Schino, of the Wrightstown Democrats, said when she arrived at 7 a.m. to the polls, the two signs were highly visible to voters. Some voters, she said, were getting out of line because they didn't bring an ID.

Schino said she asked the judge of elections who had put the signs up and he said he didn't know. "He had a worker make a little sign to put in the corner," she said. The little, blue letters on the small sign read: "You may vote without ID if you are registered."

Schino said the judge of elections said the poll workers did not bring the signs. Schino said no one at the polling location admitted to putting the signs up, however, they still stood as of 10 a.m. despite the confusion.

I thought it was an image of the virgin Mary. What a disappointment.

Kara, thank you so much for advocating online tonight, what we need to advocate going forward after the election, our economy will rebound, our country will be safe...those things are well established, but this dialogue is concerning, and we need to bring everyone together for the mission of all of US... So vote today, root tonight, but come together soon behind our President.

Well, looks like another 4 years of...nothingness. I supported Obama in his first term, until I realized that he was a "do nothing" President. Now we will have a lame duck President and nothing changes. As I watch everyone on TV cheer and celebrate, I have to wonder for what they are cheering and celebrating. There will be no "coming together" because this is a divided country and Obama is not qualified to bring about the coming together needed. Instead, what we will get, is more of the same: Obama will try to do something; the Republicans we rebuke it; Obama will crawl off to the White House and do nothing. When you have two candidates who are only concerned with the middle-class and no one else-you will get no where. And folks...that is exactly what we are getting for another four years. So much for, "Forward!"
