It’s against the voting law to go to the polls wearing items with a candidate’s name on it. The polling officials have the authority to not let you vote.
This means we can’t wear our Obama shirts, our Obama sweats, our Obama pins, hats, etc when we go to vote because it would be considered campaigning.
According to law, campaiging can’t be done within 150 feet of a polling place.
This election is too important to have our vote taken away on a “hum-bug.”
They think if they can turn people away, the people will go home and not come back to vote.
(I say if you forget, just take the pin, hat or whatever off. Put a jacket over your shirt and zip it up. They can only turn you away if they “see” your candidate’s name. Do whatever but VOTE!)
Remember: No Obama gear when you go cast your vote.
They are banking on us being excited and not being aware of this long standing law that no one even tripped off of until a Black man got on the ballot.
