“It was an identifier of who they were so the (election) wardens would know they were there with a purpose,” said Neil Janssens, the chairman of Rice’s campaign and City Council president. Janssens said the volunteers did not break any laws.
The City Clerk’s Office said the matter was resolved by changing the stickers to say “Election Day volunteer.” After the results were announced, Ellis could not say whether he would contest the issue further.
The way this is written, it sounds like Rice’s campaign was actually unaware that you’re not supposed to wear anything identifying one of the candidates, at the polls on election day. That seems like a very strange thing for a campaign not to know. Do any of you know if that’s what actually happened, or whether there was something else going on? Mariposa?
