ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. — *The above video is unrelated to this article and was originally published Monday.

This is true.

Yes, police were called, but it was not because of violence.


Supervisor of Elections Vicky Oakes said that the police have been called several times due to "solicitors" blocking traffic. There was no violence at the library and Oakes says early voting for the General Election actually been quieter and more cordial than during this year's Primary Elections. 

St. Johns County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Peret Pass confirmed this to be true.
