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.

I live in MA too and will be voting Mccain later today. That is BS but I guess the rules are the rules. Sorry to hear about this.

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.

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!!! :biggrin:

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.

I remember distinctly one of the last elections in California when Arnold S. was running for governor. The news crews were waiting for him outside his polling place. When he arrived and then walked inside while being filmed live, someone came up to him inside and shook his hand and said, "Good luck, Governator." Well, one of the polling place workers "came undone" and strongly admonished the one who spoke by saying, "THERE WILL BE NO CAMPAIGNING INSIDE MY POLLING PLACE!!! :no: "Good for that worker!" I thought to myself. Too, I'm really surprised that news cameras are allowed inside the polling places but that's a common occurrence if CNN and the local TV stations are to be believed.

Lots of campaign workers turn their shirt inside out, vote, then flip the shirt again and continue their campaingning once they're far enough from the polling place.

Here in PRHI, "electioneering" isn't allowed within 1,000 feet of a polling place.
