Virginia bans campaign clothing on election day

The state of Virginia has imposed a ban on campaign clothing at the polls on election day, joining Maine, Vermont, Kansas, and Montana in an alleged effort to free voters from undue influence or pressure.  The ACLU is arguing that this is a violation of First Amendment rights. 

Rules are constantly shifting in states on this matter.  Please make sure that you understand your state’s regulations before you head out to vote on November 4 if you plan on wearing anything (shirt, hat, button, etc.) advocating for your candidate or against another candidate.
