About a dozen early-morning voters cast ballots in Palm Beach as polls open at 7 a.m.by Ana Valdes | January 31st, 2012
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.
