About a dozen early-morning voters cast ballots in Palm Beach as polls open at 7 a.m.

Palm Beach – At St. Edward Church in Palm Beach, close to a dozen Republicans have already voted this morning, just a few minutes after polls opened at 7 a.m.

Outside the precinct, a Newt Gingrich supporter placed some campaign signs on the grass, but a precinct worker asked that the signs be removed because the church does not allow signs on the grass.

After a tense exchange with a poll worker, Gingrich’s supporter removed the signs and left.

Meanwhile, Frank Coniglio, 73 of Palm Beach, was inside voting for Mitt Romney.

“It’s him because he’s capable of doing the job and winning the election,” he said.

Precinct 1196 is located at St. Edward’s Church in Palm Beach.

    Them Bush’s want Rommney to win Florida for sure. Jebbie baby took daddy to see his co conspirator and fellow new world order man Barry Soetoro aka Obama to assure Obama if something happens and Rommney wins the whitehouse as one good communist to another the plan will go on.

    Can you believe all the while Reagan was fighting communism all over the world. He had the new world order man as his VP? Not to worry if push comes to shove in the end Jeb will have Tom Feeney and his voting machine friends fix everything again. Feeney is now head of the Florida business association or something.

    I wish they knew these caucuses are nothing short of a magic show. The next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren’t in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out.

    The sign issue brings up an interesting question concerning polling places. If an organization or entity (in this case, a Church) opens itself up as a polling place, can it still enforce its own policies concerning placement of signs, etc? That is to say, is it not, during the 12 hours the polls are open, a “public place” subject only to the laws concerning polling places (As in no campaigning within a certain distance, etc) OR does the property retain its “private property” status and thus all the property rights that come with such a designation?
