The Supreme Court today struck down a Minnesota law restricting what voters can wear to polls. In a 7-2 ruling, the justices determined that the law violates the First Amendment. Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon says he appreciates “the clarity that the Supreme Court finally provided to us in Minnesota and to the whole country after many years of litigation. I think we now know the line that the Court has drawn in saying what can be limited and what can’t be limited in the polling place.” Simon says he’ll issue updated guidance to local election officials regarding “political apparel” in the polling place and adds “this law has been on the books for 30 years, we now know that it needs changing to be entirely consistent with the First Amendment and we’re willing to add our two cents worth. I think the Court provided a pretty good roadmap of that in its decision.” Minnesota law barred voters from casting a ballot wearing clothing with the name of a candidate or political party or related to an issue on the ballot.
