Most Minneapolis voters had politics on the mind on Tuesday. Others had romance.

When one voter at Anthony Middle School walked into his polling place on Tuesday, he suddenly found himself distracted by the scent of cupcakes:

I was the helpful judge who figured out the solution to your problem. After you voted, you thanked me (flirted, maybe?) and as you left I called to you to ask for your number but before I could catch you, I got hung up and you were out the door. Would still like your number! 

It's proof that, amid the divisive political rhetoric behind this election, some still hold fast to the biblical injunction to "love thy neighbor."
