Alabama voters can wear campaign buttons, shirts

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's top election official says her office is getting plenty of phone calls about what voters can or can't wear when they go to vote Nov. 4.      

Secretary of State Beth Chapman says voters can wear a campaign T-shirt or campaign button, but they can't do any politicking while they are inside a polling place.      

She says poll workers can't wear any campaign attire.      

Chapman says she is also getting phone calls about whether voters must show a driver's license to vote.

The answer is no.      

Chapman says 22 different kinds of identification are allowed.

They include a paycheck, utility bill or bank statement with a voter's name and address.
