WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (CBS Houston) â€" A Texas woman claims that a polling place forced her to cover up her â€śVote the Bibleâ€ť shirt she was wearing or she would not be allowed to vote.
Texas Values is representing Kay Hill after Williamson County election workers told her that her shirt was deemed â€śoffensiveâ€ť and that she either needed to change her shirt or cover the words up in order to vote at Taylor City Hall on Oct. 24.
â€śThis is obviously a religious free expression and no one should be put in a position having to choose religious freedom over deciding to vote,â€ť Jonathan Saenz, president of Texas Values, told KTBC-TV.
Hill eventually complied with election workers and covered-up the words in order to vote.
Williamson County officials say Hillâ€™s shirt violated electioneering laws.
