    That is not just there it is everywhere. We were told here in Texas on the news that wearing campain buttons, hats, shirts or anything with a name on it was a no no.

  5. yea i was actually thinkiing to take off my shirt and do it shiirtless, just to stirr things up

  6. they made a guy take off his yoMamma, err Obama hat, so I was happy.

    Its really not a bad rule - most people that abused it was the flaming liberals anyway.

  7. yea, they say they are the peaceful ones, haaha wow couldnt say that with a straight face

    Wearing a t-shirt, hat or button is considered campaigning and not allow in a polling place. I think all states adhere to this rule and I think it's good. Just think of all the crap you'd be subjected to if allow.

    Yup, that's correct in Nevada, too. Absolutely no campaigning w/in 100 feet of the pooling place. No stickers, no slogans, no signs, no shouting, no nothing, and the precinct workers will escort you out the door if you ignore that. In any case, by the time this Tuesday rolls around and then I get inside the polling place I just want to be left alone to vote my conscious. I'm done with the rhetoric. Way done! Been done with it for days!!! I've let the answering machine answer the phone for the past few weeks and we haven't answered the doorbell in about as long!!!

  10. WHEW! I'm glad I didn't wear my "Sarahcuda" shirt!

    Here in Indiana, "electioneering," which is defined as showing support for a particular candidate or message, is prohibited, and messages reminding voters of that are posted at the polls. I'm not sure how strictly that is enforced, though, because I didn't see anyone wearing any Obama or McCain clothing.
