DETROIT (WWJ) – Some Detroiters went to vote on Tuesday and returned to their vehicles, only to find their cars had been towed.

This was reported by voters casting ballots Riverfront Apartments, which is designated as Precinct 144.

Voters had been given a piece of paper to place in their car window, indicating they were there to cast their ballot.

Riverfront Apartments has hundreds of residents and has been a designated polling station for many years. But some of the vehicles that were towed were in violation and parked overnight in the posted “designated construction zones,” according to a statement by apartment officials to Fox 2 News.

The tickets will cost motorists about $175.

There was no comment from city officials, including the mayor’s office as of Tuesday night.
