A portrait of President Obama greeted voters inside a polling precinct in the northeast section of Washington, D.C. It’s just one of several reports of Obama-related posters and murals spotted inside polling places around the nation.
A Fox News viewer, who asked not to be identified, said it appeared to be a case of political shenanigans and noted there was not a similar portrait of Gov. Mitt Romney. The precicnt was inside a community recreation center.

“I had been under the impression that things like that should be cleared from polling centers — to not influence any voting,” the viewer said.
A poster of the president was also photographed inside a community center in Tallahassee, Fla. The poster featured an image of President Obama with the slogan “Change the Atmosphere.”
Earlier today, a large mural of the president inside a Philadelphia polling place drew widespread outrage. A judge later ordered the mural covered.
And in Chattanooga, Tenn., an election worker was photographed wearing an Obama shirt – in apparent violation of election law.
