It’s called ‘electioneering’ Trumpkins, and if you don’t want your candidate to be compared to liberals, perhaps stop acting like them at polling places.
Yesterday during the Nevada caucus, pictures of poll workers wearing Trump t-shirts started cropping up on social media.
The Nevada State Legislature defines electioneering as such (Section 293.740, subsection 4):
As used in this section, “electioneering” means campaigning for or against a candidate, ballot question or political party by:
(a) Posting signs relating to the support of or opposition to a candidate, ballot question or political party;
(b) Distributing literature relating to the support of or opposition to a candidate, ballot question or political party;
(c) Using loudspeakers to broadcast information relating to the support of or opposition to a candidate, ballot question or political party;
(d) Buying, selling, wearing or displaying any badge, button or other insigne which is designed or tends to aid or promote the success or defeat of any political party or a candidate or ballot question to be voted upon at that election; or
(e) Soliciting signatures to any kind of petition.
For all intents and purposes, the t-shirts emblazoned with large Trump logos could also be considered a sign, though the button, badge or insignia section will suffice.
Here’s another example.
Via Victory Girls:
The Nevada GOP is looking like amateur hour as absolute craziness has taken over the process. It is alleged that in certain precincts, Trump supporters have taken over the process – including caucus volunteers that are wearing Trump gear in direct violation of Nevada electioneering law.
One source from Rubio’s camp had some more colorful language for the electioneering violations.
Amazingly, the Nevada GOP seems to be unaware of the rules and regulations governing electioneering at polling places.
It's not against the rules for volunteers to wear candidate gear. Volunteers went through extensive training & are doing a great job

Aside from the t-shirts (many more of which can be found on social media), the poll workers were engaged in some other Democrat-like tactics.
The GOP in general better get this crap under control. When Republicans use the tactics that make Democrats famous, then they cease to differ from that other party.
These tactics need to be denounced, not celebrated.
