SCOTUS Strikes Down Ban on Politics at Polling Places

The United States Supreme Court said Minnesota’s ban on political clothing at polling places was too broad and vague.

SCOTUS Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.said:

“A shirt declaring ‘All Lives Matter,‘ we are told, could be ‘perceived’ as political. How about a shirt bearing the name of the National Rifle Association? Definitely out. That said, a shirt displaying a rainbow flag could be worn ‘unless there was an issue on the ballot’ that ‘related somehow . . . to gay rights.‘ A shirt simply displaying the text of the Second Amendment? Prohibited. But a shirt with the text of the First Amendment? ‘It would be allowed.‘ “

  1. One of the continuing problems with having laws that even the U.S. Supreme Court can’t agree on (I saw the vote was 7-2).

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.

    The laws that a person must follow should not be more complex, obscure nor difficult than that person could reasonably know and follow.

    And we should care why?

    I would think people should know better than to wear political clothing to vote. If you aren’t sure, don’t wear it.
