KANSAS CITY —Law enforcement authorities are investigating vandalism at the WWI Museum in Kansas City.

The museum at 2 Memorial Drive is being used as a polling place.  Early Tuesday, workers found spray paint on stonework near the entrance that said, "don't vote and fight for revolution."

In a social media response, the museum said, "We are proud to be a polling location and condemn this attempt at voter intimidation. Our democracy is something that generations of veterans, including those in WWI, have fought to defend. We hope you’ll vote today and make your voice heard."

Police reported no additional details.
