Voting in Person? There’s A Dress Code For That
Did you know that Vermont has restrictions on what you can wear/do when voting in person? Displaying or voicing information for or against a candidate is “electioneering” (campaigning). So leave that Biden pin, MAGA cap, and Ken Goslant sign at home.
Title 17, § 2508(a)
“…no campaign literature, stickers, buttons, name stamps, information on write-in candidates, or other political materials are displayed, placed, handed out, or allowed to remain.”
