You’re with her? You’re feeling the Bern? You want to make America great again, or reignite promise? Fine, but leave the t-shirts and buttons home, or in the car, or in your pocket when you go to the polls, or you might be violating state law.
“No person shall do any electioneering within the polling place, or in any public street, within a one hundred foot radial,” says New York State law on the subject of campaigning near a polling place while the polls are open. “No political banner, button, poster or placard shall be allowed in or upon the polling place or within such one hundred foot radial.”
That means walking in or standing by the door with the campaign sign is an obvious no-no, but wearing a button is, too. By extension, clothing with the candidate’s name or logo is also prohibited.
Maybe no one will notice, maybe no one will complain, or just maybe you’ll find yourself in violation of state election law and might not even get to cast your vote.
Got your Kasich shoelaces? Your Sanders socks? Clinton fleece? Trump cap? Leave them at home or cover them up when you head to the polls, and you should be OK.
