Two women were arrested Tuesday afternoon, police said, after they took their tops off and yelled anti-Donald Trump statements inside a midtown polling place.
Police said the women walked into the polling station inside PS 59, at 233 E. 56th St. on Manhattan’s East Side, around 8:30 a.m., removed their tops and made a scene, yelling anti-Trump sentiments as New Yorkers cast their ballots.
PS 59 is the same polling site where Trump voted a few hours after the incident.
The women were removed from the building and issued summonses in violation of New York Election Law 17-130, subsection 4, an NYPD spokeswoman said. The state law prohibits electioneering at polling places.
