Church sign telling Ohio voters, ‘Vote life, vote family, vote the Bible’ riles politicians

MARIETTA, OH, November 6, 2012, ( – A sign telling Ohio voters to “vote the Bible” has caused a stir in this year’s key swing state of Ohio.

The Lighthouse Baptist Church in Vincent, Ohio, posted a message on its church sign reading: “Vote Life, Vote Family, Vote the Bible!” 

The problem? That sign may be within 100 feet of a polling place, and some say that violates Ohio laws against electioneering. However, the sign does not bear a clearly partisan message.

Washington County Board of Elections Director Tara Hupp said she has sent a team to see whether the message is within 100 feet of a polling place, and “If it violates election law, then it will be taken care of.”

The incident occurs just days after a Texas woman was ordered to cover up a t-shirt that said “Vote the Bible” during early voting.
