Got lost in the Bajoran Wormhole

Hola LJ peoples,

Got lost and was mostly dead & didn't even lurk since October.  Seriously - mostly dead.

When I started creating this entry, my last draft popped up.  It was " OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SHOOT ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Huh.

Life is better since then.

LOVE - m

Some of you might have received an email about passive electioneering a few weeks ago from that friend who never checks the  Snopes version before hitting the "Oh God Oh God we are all going to die!" button.

and you ignored it.

Well.... they were correct.  According to the AP :

It's OK to be fired up about voting for your candidate next month. Just don't wear your feelings on your sleeve.

Or your hat, or your lapel or anyplace else when you show up at the polls.

The State Board of Elections on Tuesday voted 2-1 to ban clothing, hats, buttons or other paraphernalia that expressly advocates the election or defeat of a candidate or issue inside polling places. (emphasis added)

The prohibition follows an existing ban against electioneering within 40 feet of the entrance to any polling precinct.

The board said its action strikes a balance between the First Amendment right to free speech and the right of people to cast secret ballots in a safe, orderly way free of undue influence or harassment. (see link for full article)
 

The ACLU is considering taking this to court but I doubt that will happen before Nov. 4.

Other states that have similar laws are Pennsylvania, Delaware, Kansas,Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Vermont.
