Beware: Obama voters – Do not wear Obama shirts to voting booths.

I know the young voters out there are going to Vote this year! and they should, it’s very important for our future. However, please do me a favor! DO NOT WEAR YOUR OBAMA SHIRTS TO THE BOOTHS.

THEY WILL TURN YOU AWAY! wearing your shirt is a sign of campaigning and it is illegal to campaign within proximity of a designated voting area.

The republicans are betting on the anxiousness of the young crowd, hoping they will wear their shirts to show suppport, however we would just be doing damage!

SOOO spread the word to your friends! wear your shirt anytime except near that voting booth

    My aunt wrote me an email about this claim: “This is not true I contacted the DC board of elections and they said this is bogus; they cannot turn you away for clothing or anything of the sort. You can request an absentee ballot even if they determine you are not in the voting district, and they will have lawyers for both parties on site as well as a number you can call if you feel your rights have been violated.”

    I called the New York City Board of Elections and was told that in Section 8-104 of the New York Election Law, it is illegal to wear a banner, button, poster or plaque, it is called electionerring.

    Now the law does not mention t-Shirts, however people at the polls can request that you cover the T-shirt up or wear it inside out.

    So just to be on the safe side, for NY residents, you can wear the shirt but just don’t have it seen until you finsih casting your vote!

    Over and out!

    Oh look out for the updated Post!
    Thanks again DON JUAN!
