A handful of polling sites in several states have come under fire for displaying pro-Obama murals and signs, as well as allowing poll workers to wear Obama campaign gear -- a violation of election law, officials say, that could influence voters.

In response to the judge's order, workers slapped up a few pieces of paper that only partially covered his image -- while leaving the Obama campaign logo and a quote from the current president in full view of voters.
