BK residents cast presidential vote with dog poop bags

Brooklyn residents are already casting their vote for president, but not in the way you'd expect.

Several pet stores are allowing customers to vote by buying either President Barack Obama or Republican hopeful Mitt Romney dog poop bags.

The bags were created by Jonathan Bolton, the co-owner of MetroPaws. The bags are sold at Who's Your Doggy and Money Paws, both located in Williamsburg.

Bolton says the bags are a fun way to keep tab on who's rooting for who and who you don't want to win.

So far, more Romney bags are flying off the shelves.
