Voters Can Now Wear Political Clothing To The Polls

In a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that voters can wear political clothing to the polls. Previously, people were banned from doing so out of worry they may intimidate other voters. A Minnesota man brought a lawsuit after he was threatened with prosecution for wearing a "Don't Tread on Me" T-shirt and a "Please ID Me" button to vote.
