U.S. Supreme Court Still Undecided on Whether to Hear Case on Political Clothing at the Polls

The U.S. Supreme Court considered whether to hear Minnesota Voters Alliance v Mansky at its October 6 conference, but when the results of that conference were revealed on October 10, the Court had not acted on that case. It will be considered again at a future conference. The issue is a Minnesota law that makes it illegal for a voter at the polls to wear anything relating to politics.

It is already established law that voters can be barred from wearing something at the polls that expresses a point of view about some race on the ballot, but the Minnesota goes further. One of the plaintiffs was wearing something that referred to the Tea Party, but the Tea Party was not on the ballot. The lower courts had upheld the Minnesota law.

  1. NO red or blue clothes allowed in polling places ???

    One more reason to have ALL paper mail ballots.

    See Oregon for about 15 years.

  2. I wonder if I wear a Russian flag pin when I go to vote if that would be considered a political statement.

  3. WZ — the FBI/CIA/local cops may arrest you as being a spy / election hacker for the Russia regime ???
