A documentary crew that was filming inside a Bucktown polling site Tuesday has been asked to stop and ask for voter permission.

This comes after voters complained to election officials and took to social media with the issue.

Within hours those officials had contacted the film crew to say it had overstepped its bounds. The crew took down the sign and proceeded to ask permission before filming anyone inside the polling site.
