WILMINGTON, NC (AP) — A Democratic Party official will try to get a Wilmington polling place moved because the church used for this week’s balloting had a sign relating to the constitutional amendment on gay marriage.
Democratic precinct chairman Nancy Ballard Cox considers the sign voter intimidation and plans to ask elections officials to change voting in the precinct to another location. The constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman passed statewide, it was rejected by a majority of voters in the precinct.
Elections officials ruled the church sign was beyond a buffer zone between campaign signs and the door of the polling place.
