    Nope. and never seen one at my polling place but i don't pay much attention to those types of things.  I'll have to ask others in my area if they have seen or gotten them.

    Yeah, there is usually a little old lady saying “Don’t forget your sticker!”

    I have never been offered a sticker in all the years that I have voted, so I asked. There are two districts that vote in my voting place so I went to the other side of my son's grammar school gym and asked a bunch of people before I was pointed over to the end of a table where I finally found a nearly empty page of stickers. I wanted a sticker for once and when no one jumped up or was moderately eager to help me, I wasn't gonna leave without a freaking sticker.

    Walked in and out in five minutes - took the longest to get my sticker. But the number on my voter ticket was 3 x's higher than usual, especially for a midterm. Election volunteers said that there was above average first time voter and young people turnout. Awesome. And there are 4 hours left to vote, so still have the after work crowd. Didn't get to vote as a family, but everyone voted. Kinda bummer. Life.






    I’m actually a bit surprised they let you wear that shirt to the polling place.  Many states have laws that prevent people from wearing political clothing in polling places.

    I don't think it counts unless it's about the current candidates being voted for that day. There are only laws against campaigning at polling stations, which means campaigning for the people on the ballots. Nobody's going to be stopped from wearing a Nixon shirt or something, lol.

    True, lol!  I always thought it was just in regards to the current candidates as well, but also just read that a person wearing a Trump shirt had take it off and voted shirtless in South Carolina, so IDK.

    There were plenty of people wearing VOTE FOR BETO, GILLUM, ABRAMS shirts on the news at the polling places today. And MAGA hats. I had a jacket over my shirt since it's raining and shitty out here, but if not coming from work, I've always worn shirts that are political or in support of voting on election day. I doubt any of the people who couldn't find stickers would have confronted me.

    I'm sure it just depends on who is working the particular poll. There really isn't supposed to be campaigning at polling stations, but obviously a lot of people don't know it or don't care.

    I'm aware of no campaigning within a certain distance from the polling station. Most people had jackets or flannels in addition to their shirts. I'm in a blue blue area of a blue blue state, we don't have to show ID's or anything.  And Obama isn't on the ballot. I put the sticker on my jacket and transferred it to my t-shirt once I got home. 

    I love that shirt. You got to pick your state and in most cases, the wording was within an outline of the state. Mine wasn't, but I still love it.

    Not surprised but sad to hear of all the bullshit going on today to screw up people's right to vote...gerrymandering is hopefully going to be baked out of the cake one day. Maps should be drawn by a non-partisan geographical body with common sense lines around districts.

    Voted with my kiddos after dinner. Seemed as busy as a presidential election year. Never seen it like that for midterms. Got a sticker when I got my ballot and offered another after I voted. Told the man I already had one, but then noticed my sticker had fallen off in the booth so I grabbed another. Ran off to basketball with the kids and one of the coaches looked at my youngest and said, "Did you get to vote twice?" Looked over and noticed my sticker must have rubbed off on to his arm in the booth :lol:

    We have 2 Senate seats and the governor up for election in MN. All currently held by a Dem. The governor could go either way I think, but the Senate seats should hold.
