JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As a Congressional vote for military action in Syria approaches, some in Jacksonville are vocal about their opposition to President Barack Obama's plan.

Constituents of Ander Crenshaw marched from Memorial Park to the Congressman's office, imploring him to vote "No" by posting notices on his office doors and windows.

The Congressman is undecided on his vote, according to a recent Associated Press poll.

Meanwhile, at Terry Road Baptist Church, a congregation with a large population of Syrians, some attending a church service were also against military action.

In Jacksonville, the vote seems to be split down party lines. The poll reveals Senator Bill Nelson and Congresswoman Corrine Brown would vote "Yes" with Senator Marco Rubio and Congressmen Ron Desantis and Ted Yoho would vote military action.
