Nevada Polling Places: Poultry-Free

It will be illegal to wear chicken costumes at Nevada polling places during the upcoming Republican primary election on June 8th. Republican Senate candidate Sue Lowden is forever linked to Leghorns after proposing bartering chickens for medical care, so wearing your chicken suit near the polls will be regarded as a violation of Nevada law Section 293.740 section 4(D), which forbids these activities near the polls:

(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.

 If you plan to picnic on the courthouse lawn that Tuesday, better leave fried chicken off the menu.
