Texas Values, a Christian group in Texas, is threatening to file a complaint with the Attorney General’s office because Alva Hill was forced to cover up her 'Vote the Bible' t-shirt by election officials when she went to cast an early vote in Taylor, Texas.
Hill claims she was told that her shirt “may be offensive” because it suggested to “vote Republican.”
She was allowed to vote after an election worker gave her a jacket to cover up the t-shirt, reports KTBC-TV.
Texas Values President Jonathan Saenz is demanding that the Williamson Country Election Office allow 'Vote the Bible' t-shirts in polling places, claiming it falls under freedom of religion.
Williamson County Public Affairs Director Connie Watson told KTBC-TV: “The shirt did say vote so it did have to do with voting. Electioneering or loitering within 100 feet of the entrance to the polling place or inside the polling place is not allowed. Electioneering would cover wearing a hat, a pen, a t-shirt or a sign that would indicate a position for a political party, candidate or a proposition.”
