Bible T-shirt Banned at Voting Booth

A Texas woman visiting her polling place to vote in Austin was told to cover up her shirt. Kay Hill's shirt had Vote the Bible written on it. An election official told her she might offend someone. She was made to put on a jacket before she could vote. Officials in Williamson County defended the decision, saying the poll worker was following federal law that does not allow "electioneering" in or near a polling place where someone is making a suggestion about how someone else should vote.
