NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (WDTN) - A sign switch has some New Carlisle residents steaming mad. Tecumseh school levy signs in the front yards of homes have been taken or vandalized.
Residents in Twin Creeks woke up Tuesday morning to their "Vote Yes for Tecumseh's Tax Levy" signs missing or replaced with "Vote No" signs. New Carlisle resident Stacia Jones-Allen is upset someone would take those signs out of her neighbors' yards.
"I think it's petty. I think that the levy has not been passed the past nine times, so stealing signs is not going to get it passed or not passed. It's all about people getting out there and voting," said Jones-Allen.
Assistant Superintendent Paula Crew said they received several calls from concerned voters Tuesday morning.
"I respect any individuals right to vote no, but at the same time if someone wants to vote yes, I don't think that vote should be hindered at all," said Crew.
Larry Hall's "Vote No" signs have been vandalized and some even stolen from his yard.
"You have a right no matter what side you are voting on to put a sign in your yard and it should stay there," said Hall.
The Clark County Sheriff's Office said anyone caught defacing or tearing down a political sign could be charged with criminal mischief. Anyone caught taking a sign off someone's property could be charged with theft. You could also be charged with trespassing.
