If you ask many people here who know the rules of the polling places, signwaving and political clothing are NOT ALLOWED within so many feet of polling places.

This is NOT a time to rebel against the rules in the name of the first amendment. If you do it, you will not be allowed to vote and that is the most precious thing we need right now.

I have always asked my friends and family to dress and act as if you were going to a job interview or church for example.

.....very good advice. ;)

Have fun getting kicked out of the polls, arguing with security, making Ron Paul look bad, and losing us votes.

It's as if people have forgotten about what happened at the Straw poll in California that was shut down.

There is no reason to dress up and wave signs...just go vote and wait so you can elect delegates. You need to be dressed appropriately for that too.

This is common sense. ;)

Sign waving is great at the polls, as long as it's at the proper distance.

You are correct :) I should have been a little more clear. In fact you can pass out literature at designated areas as well.

I was referring to the straw poll where large signs where brought in the building.

That sort of thing is unnecessary. ;)

Isn't this a violation of the 1st amendment?

If you read the rules of your precinct polling location...

...you will see that no political messages are aloud within a certain distance.

Follow the rules and there are no worries....that's it....real simple.

Contact your local voting precinct for further details... ;)

I'm sign waving all day OVER THE FREEWAY! More cars will get a little subliminal advertising. I'll break to vote. I'm trying to get as many people as possible to do this and the others should be working at the polls. And I will put on a nice sweater over my Ron Paul shirt from the sign wave.

Awesome advice-- It is particularly important for our supporters to look appropriate and serious given the "RP is a Kook" propaganda we have to encounter. We can definitely pull in undecideds at the caucus by projecting the right image.

It's a state-by-state issue. I work the polls twice a year in NH, and what is illegal is rallying withing 25' of the entrance to a polling place (the line will be marked, and if you go over it, you will be asked nicely to move to the other side), and LEAVING political material in polling booths. For instance, both times I voted for John Babiarz (L) for governor, I was wearing a Babiarz for governor shirt. That was fine to wear the shirt, you just can't leave it inside. BTW, this means that handing out material is a bad idea - I've tried it - if you hand it to people on their way in, they may leave the material in the booth, and you will be held responsible.
This is just my experience and knowledge I have gained about NH, and may not apply to other states or situations (matter of fact, from what I understand of caucuses, I'd go in a suit).

This is only true if you are a government worker, I believe you cannot be within viewing distance (aka go around a corner or go far away if in plain sight)

In Iowa, you can wear anything you want

Do you think they care? Do you think they'll say "oh sorry sir you are correct, here come inside and vote".

Get real people. This is not the time to play games. If you truly want Ron Paul elected you're going to have to swallow your pride and play by the rules...for now.

It's all about getting him elected. Period.
