The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Minnesota Voters Alliance v. Mansky, a case concerning whether a Minnesota Election Day law violates a person’s First Amendment free speech rights. According to the law, voters near or in a polling place are prohibited from wearing political badges, buttons, or insignia on Election Day to cast a ballot. The case dates back to 2010 when three conservative groups filed suit. They wore buttons that read “Please ID me,” and one wore a tea party logo shirt with the words “Don’t tread on me” to polling places on Election Day. One of those voters was Andrew Cilek, the executive director of the Minnesota Voters Alliance. An election official stopped him, and he was initially prevented from voting.

On June 14, 2018, the Court ruled 7-2 that Minnesota’s law is too vague and violates First Amendment free speech rights. close
