COLUMBUS, Ga – Have you ever thought about what to wear to the polls? Is it okay to wear a T-shirt or campaign button featuring your favorite candidate or political party? News 3’s Greg Loyd talked to Director of Elections and Voter Registration Nancy Boren for advice on voter etiquette.
Mrs. Boren broke down the rules simply: No one should wear political items into the voting precincts, and no one is allowed to campaign within 150 feet of the polling stations. If a line stretches outside the door, any one campaigning must maintain an additional 25 feet of distance from the last voter in the line. But Mrs. Boren does not believe voters today should face long lines as they typically do in Presidential elections.
It’s important to remember to report to your proper precinct to vote today and also bring with you a valid identification card, such as driver’s license.
