Woman wearing MIT shirt banned from voting in Boca Raton
A woman attempting to vote in West Boca Raton this morning was initially prohibited from entering the polling place because she was wearing a tee shirt with the letters MIT.
BocaNewsNow.com has heard from multiple sources that an election supervisor at the polling place ultimately realized that MIT stands for “Massachusetts Institute of Technology” — a school where students tend to know how to spell — and was not a campaign shirt for the Republican candidate, who spells his name MITT.
Campaigning is not permitted within several yards of a polling place.
The woman was ultimately allowed to vote. (RELATED: MIT sweatshirt, not to be confused with MITT)
