Update: Thank you to all who helped out without all the sarcasm. It's much appreciated!!!
here's the email-
Please, please, please advise everyone you know that they absolutely can NOT go to the polls wearing any Obama (or whoever you are voting for) shirts, pins, hats, etc. It is AGAINST THE LAW and will be grounds to have the polling officials to turn you away. This is considered campaigning and no one can campaign within 25 feet of the polls. They are banking on us being overly excited and not being aware of this long standing law that you can bet will be ENFORCED THIS YEAR!!!!!
They are banking that if you are turned away, you will not go home and change your clothes and return to the polls to vote. Please just don't wear ANY gear of any sorts to the polls! Please share this information with as many people as you can. If you are already aware of this, please don't take it as insulting your intelligence.
Have a great day and see you at the polls on November 4th.
I have a number of friends in NY who received the email and are confused so i called the election board and spoke to someone name Marian who said she is aware of the scam. However, a few of my friends called (518) 474-1953 and spoke to a Mary Ellen and a Glenda Ross who told them they will not be allowed to wear obama tee shirts.
Please help! How do I go about reporting these people?
