'Vote the Bible' shirt almost keeps woman from being allowed to vote11/2/2012
Memo to anyone planning on busting out a "Vote the Bible" T-shirt before heading to the polls on Tuesday: Bring a sweater. Kay Hill says she was forced to cover up after authorities spotted her at the city hall in Taylor, Texas, where she was voting early last week. Election officials argued the shirt violated a state law against electioneering, which says that no one can try to influence other voters or advocate political positions "by word, sign or gesture" inside or within a 100 feet of a polling place. Although Hill was allowed to vote after an election staff member offered her a jacket, her lawyer says Hill might still file a formal complaint with the state’s attorney general if she's not offered an apology.
