Make Your Vote Count


I just received an interesting email from my sister in law about voting regulations and making sure your vote is counted in the upcoming election.

I am maybe one of the few who realized this, but when I vote, or anyone else goes to vote for that matter, if you wear a shirt, hat, pin, etc. with a candidate's name or picture, you can be turned away from the polling location. That is considered campaigning, and campaigning is not allowed within a certain amount of feet from a polling site.

I thought I would pass this information along in case anyone (like me ) was not aware, or even just forgets about this regulation. In light of the unprecedented aspects of the upcoming Presidential Elections, it is so important that everyone who can vote, does so, and gets their vote counted!
