True story.

According to the New York State law, you are prohibited to wear pro-candidate buttons, stickers and t-shirts, bring posters or banners within 100 feet of polling places when open. Most times, polling places will not say anything and for the most part, if they say anything at all, they may ask you to remove your hat before you walk inside.

If the person is actually campaigning for a candidate (and) causing a disturbance, the poll workers can have the person removed," Conklin wrote in an email. A poll worker can technically be charged with a misdemeanor if they spot electioneering and don't try to stop it", said John Conklin, a spokesman for the state Board of Elections, according to WGRZ.
