Is campaign paraphernalia permitted for in person voting?

No. Michigan has prohibited the practice of displaying election-related materials at the polls for decades. This includes clothing and buttons as well as materials such as pamphlets, flyers and stickers. Voters cannot display such items in the polling place or within 100 feet of an entrance to a polling place. 

Election inspectors are obligated to request that voters entering the polls remove campaign buttons or cover up clothing which bears any reference to a political party or interest group, campaign slogan or candidate(s) name if associated with a ballot question or candidate whose name is appearing on the ballot for that specific election.
