Can I Wear Campaign Apparel or Accessories While Voting in Taylor, Texas?

In the era of the pandemic, voters are being reminded that electoral rules also apply to masks. In Taylor, Texas, if a voter is wearing campaign apparel or accessories, they may be denied voting. Alicia Pierce, a spokeswoman for the Texas Secretary of State office, has confirmed this. Voters are usually asked to turn their campaign shirts inside out, put on a jacket, or return to voting later if there is anything that cannot be covered.

If a voter cannot communicate in English, an election official can communicate with them in a language that both parties understand. The House of Representatives is unlikely to vote directly on a resolution regarding anti-Semitic activity and sympathy with terrorist organizations. Instead, it would vote on a procedural measure to introduce it, essentially nullifying the resolution. Voters with disabilities who want reasonable accommodations to vote in a county election must submit a request for accommodation to the county's early voting clerk or political subdivision no later than 21 days before the date of the election.

Upon receiving the request, the early voting secretary will make reasonable accommodations so that the voter can vote. Immediately after closing the polls to vote on election day, the presiding electoral judge or alternate electoral judge will print the ribbon to show the number of votes cast for each candidate or measure for each voting machine. Texas is one of the few states that has not opened voting by mail to any voter concerned about contracting COVID-19 at a polling place.
