FYI, Obama Mamas: if you live in Virginia, don't plan on sporting your spiffy new tee shirt when you head to the polls next Tuesday, unless you've got a jacket to cover it up. Same goes for the SARAH! pin on your purse, McCain lovers. The Virginia State Board of Elections approved a policy (pdf) earlier this month prohibiting the exhibition of campaign materials:
No person shall show, display, or exhibit any material, object, item, advertisement, or piece
of apparel, which has the purpose of expressly advocating the election or defeat of a clearly
identified candidate or issue.
Any person who does so shall be asked by the officers to cease from showing, displaying or
exhibiting the material, object, item, advertisement, or piece of cover it until they leave the prohibited area and polling place.
If my tee had ever arrived (one week left, think it'll show?) I'd definitely be subversively wearing it under my coat. Ok, I guess that's not really subversive, but you don't want me getting thrown out of Shady Grove Elementary, now do you? I can keep my colors under wraps if it'll turn Virginia blue.
