Some Williamsburg residents aren’t shy about voicing their political leanings.

Just two weeks after the builder of the Edge waterfront megadevelopment unveiled a 100-foot tall banner mocking Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the residents of a Wythe Avenue building endorsed Democratic candidate Barack Obama by spelling out “VOTE OBAMA” with a seven-story sign.
