Don’t Wear This to the Polls
Listen guys, everywhere you look today people will be wearing campaign paraphernalia, rocking T-shirts, hats and pins supporting their candidate of choice. Please warn them of the dangers of doing so. This could possibly cost them their vote!
Before heading out the door and to the polls today, check your wardrobe. If you don’t, you might get stopped at the door of your polling site! There is a dress code for voting that says what you can’t wear. Wearing your political allegiances can cause a problem at the polls.
In some states, the law forbids any campaigning for or against any candidate, measure or political party in or within 100 feet of the outside entrance to a polling place. In other words, no signs are to be admitted inside the building, even if you’re wearing them.
Leave that fly Obama T-shirt or button you purchased at home or cover it up completely under your coat when you get to the polls today.
If you are going to wear paraphernalia, wear a pin or a sticker or something that’s easily removable. You can put it back on once you vote and leave the polling place.
Spread the word and exercise your right to vote!
