“I never know what team it was,” Topolski mentioned. “They place up a substantial 3-tale indication about counting every Black vote, and how we count on Black voters. But which is non-public home, and the operator failed to give them authorization to be there.”

Topolski mentioned the team remaining devoid of incident. “They were being pretty cooperative,” he mentioned. “We questioned them to go away and a boat from St. Ignace arrived and picked them up … thanks to their cooperation, they just acquired a warning.”
