Election boards are reminding voters, to be aware of Electioneering Laws when heading to the poll on election day.

In Indiana and Illinois, you cannot "openly" show support for a candidate or party.

Poll workers can ask you to change or turn your shirt inside out, so you can still vote.

You can however show support for your political views on various issues like abortion or police brutality.

In Kentucky, Electioneering must be done 100 feet from the front door of any polling location.

The Henderson County Clerks Office says, if you experience any kind of intimidation, you are asked to report it to a poll worker.

It's also important to note that Federal Law states "No person, whether acting under the color of law or otherwise, shall intimidate, threaten, or coerce or attempt to intimidate, threaten, or coerce any person voting or attempting to vote.

Election officials in the Tri-State say ballot boxes will also be under heavy surveillance.
