A Kansas City, Missouri, voter was incorrectly told he couldn’t cast a ballot while wearing his “Make America Great Again” hat on Tuesday, a county election official has said.

The unidentified man, who was attempting to vote at the Northland Cathedral, was asked by a poll worker to remove his hat, the Kansas City Star reported. However, Tiffany Ellison, Democratic director with the Clay County Election Board, said the hat should have been allowed since President Trump’s iconic slogan didn’t pertain to the primary elections.

The article goes on to state the following:

Ellison said the man was “upset” and “combative” when he was asked to remove his hat. A Twitter user said on social media a “slightly inebriated, belligerent man wearing a red hat” argued with officials and “started to film the voters” after he was asked to take off his hat.

The man then called the Secretary of State’s Office to determine whether or not he was breaking any law — and the office confirmed he was not. The county election board eventually “called him to let him know he could go back up there,” Ellison said. “He thanked us and apologized for his behavior.”

  1. I back President Trump 100% and will proudly vote for him again. However, because I am very actively involved in politics including poll station watching, I know that you cannot wear anything or carry a sign within 100 feet of a polling station that endorses one candidate over another. Although this hat does not technically mention President Trump and since the election in question was not about Donald Trump, I think (perhaps wrongly) that a court would say the hat represents a bias toward the Republican candidate. But, I could be wrong.
