YES YOU CAN wear a button, t-shirt to the polls!

Like you, I have received that chain email saying don't wear your Obama paraphernalia to the polls. This is ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE! (Thanks Alicia and Adriene!)

Click here if you want proof, but according to the Maryland State Board of Elections:

Rumor: If I wear a campaign button or t-shirt into the polling place, will I be allowed to vote?

Fact: A voter may wear campaign paraphernalia (buttons, t-shirts, or stickers) into the polling place while he or she is there to vote (the voter may not linger in the polling place after voting). However, an election judge, challenger and watcher, or other person stationed inside the polling place or within 100 feet of the polling place may not wear or display campaign materials.

Be fab! at the polls. Buy the Michelle Obama tee and wear it to the polls! :)
