On the cover of today’s Post-Dispatch, there’s a photo (unfortunately not online) taken at Hazelwood MIddle School. It depicts a handmade sign that reads “Voting Place,” and includes the names “Obama” and “McCain.”
Doesn’t that violate regulations prohibiting campaign signs at polling places? Or is that sign up just for the kids’ voting, to be taken down when the adult voters arrive next week?
I’m hoping that it’s just for the kids — but, even so, this might be a good opportunity to teach them that we don’t promote particular candidates at the polls.
