Arkansas has a law about electioneering within 100 feet of poll site.
Our Arkansas Secretary of State, Charlie Daniels, sent out this newsletter and I found one question interesting.
Q:  Is it true that I will not be allowed to vote if I'm wearing a shirt or sticker for a certain candidate?
A:  While it's true that Arkansas law prohibits anyone from bringing or wearing campaign materials within 100 feet of a polling site (called electioneering), you will NOT be turned away from voting for doing so.  Election officials will ask you to remove any buttons, stickers or hats;  if its an article of clothing, the official will ask you to cover the message.  You won't be denied your right to vote, but election officials must protect everyone's right to cast their ballot in a neutral environment without feeling pressured to make a particular choice.  If you see electioneering at your polling site, report it to your county board of election commissions.
So don't wear your political tees to vote or they're supposed to tell you to go turn it inside out and come back.  They'll also tell you to discard the buttons and other political items.
