The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to take up a case concerning a Minnesota law that bans voters from wearing political badges, buttons or other political insignia at the polling place. The alliance sued several Twin Cities election officials and Secretary of State Steve Simon.
But the Pacific Legal Foundation, a conservative firm that is representing the Minnesota Voters Alliance, claims the 8th Circuit's decision to uphold the law "effectively chills the free speech rights of millions of voters across the country by threatening criminal prosecution or civil penalties for voters who wear logo t-shirts, caps, jackets, buttons, and other apparel in state-declared speech-free zones".
Lawyers for the state urged the Supreme Court to stay out of the case and leave in place a lower court opinion that went against Cilek. "It essentially creates a speech-free zone in the polling place". "EIW asserts that the apparel conveys only a philosophy, not an endorsement of particular candidates, ballot measures, or political parties", Judge William Benton wrote for a three-judge panel.

The law "is a reasonable method to ensure that the polling place is a location where citizens can exercise the right to vote without confusion, distraction or distress, and election officials can preserve the integrity and reliability of elections", the state officials argued.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which includes Texas, has weighed in as well, upholding a similar Louisiana law in 1993.
