    NEW YORK (WCBS) — It wasn’t exactly a banner day for three women on the Manhattan Bridge Monday morning.

They were arrested trying to unfurl a large sign off the north side of the bridge at around 6 a.m.

Two of the women are in their 30s and one is in her 20s, officials said.

The NYPD removed the banner, which never fully unraveled.

The 200+ pound banner was 100 feet long by 40 feet wide. The suspects told CBS2 the banner carried a simple, one-word message: Vote.

The three were released with court summonses.
