The National WWI Memorial Museum in Kansas City was found defaced with anti-voting graffiti on Election Day.

The museum shared an image to Twitter on the morning of Nov. 3 showing red writing that read “Don’t Vote!” and “Fight for Revolution” scrawled across the outside of the building.

An image of a hammer and sickle was also drawn on the building.

“This morning our stonework was defaced. We are proud to be a polling location & 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 & make your voice heard,” the tweet read.

The museum is functioning as a polling place during this year’s presidential election.

Since the incident this morning, the building walls have been cleaned and are no longer displaying the graffiti.
