Photos obtained by The Daily Caller show that students at Saint John’s University in Minnesota voted Tuesday at a polling place where a wall-sized enlargement of a photo from the Obama White House situation room was displayed prominently.

The photo depicts the president watching as SEAL Team Six executed a plan to kill Osama bin Laden.

Poll workers covered up Obama’s face during the day with a single sheet of copy paper, but the rest of the iconic image remained on display all day, students told The Daily Caller.

“The image is in the back of the polling location,” Patrick Stewart-Hester, a St. John’s student, told TheDC.

He said that before the sheet of paper was put in place, the president’s face was clearly visible to students as they entered the polling place and checked in with poll workers.
