Warning to Voters This Year!

EDITOR'S NOTE: Normally as a journalist, I try to keep politics out of the NEWS AND CURRENT EVENTS section, but when Tacia Price sent this warning to me, I felt I needed to let everybody know about it --- Calvin.


Please, please, please advise everyone you know that they absolutely
can NOT go to the polls wearing any Obama (or whoever you are voting for)
shirts, pins, hats, etc.

It is AGAINST THE LAW and will be grounds to have the polling officials turn you away. This is considered campaigning and no one can campaign within a certain amount of feet of the polls.
They are banking on us being overly excited and not being aware of this long-standing law that you can bet will be ENFORCED THIS YEAR!!!!!

They are banking that if you are turned away, you will not go home and change your clothes and return to the polls to vote. Please just don't wear ANY gear of any sorts to the polls! Please share this information with as many people as you can. If you are already aware of this, or had it happen to you already, disregard this notice.

Have a great day and see you at the polls on November 4th.
