LEE Co., Miss. (WTVA) -- The dress code for voters in the state of Mississippi is a little different this year.
"A person should be able to wear what they want to wear," said a Nettelton County native.
For some voters, concerns grew as Mississippi voters found out a Tennessee poll worker turned voters away for wearing "black lives matter" attire.
But in the state of Mississippi, that is illegal.
"You can wear anything that's freedom of speech," said Circuit Clerk Camille Roberts.
Election officials say there some things voters cannot wear, and doing so could delay your attempt to cast your ballot.
"The only thing you're going to be asked to leave a precinct for or may be asked to go to the bathroom is if you have any campaign gear on," said Roberts.
Lee County Circuit Clerk Camille Roberts says, in Mississippi any attire supporting candidates or one side or the other of a political race is not allowed within 150 feet of any voting precinct
She says it also includes the display of campaign signs.
"So, if you have on something that asks you to vote for one candidate or the other you will be asked to step outside," said Roberts.
However, Roberts says she does not agree with turning voters away.
"If you come to one of my classes the first thing is don't turn anyone away from voting," said Roberts.
Instead, Roberts says she trained poll workers on alternatives.
"Face masks with something on it, we've just told them to turn it inside out. T-shirts ball caps they can remove it or put a sweater on over it," said Roberts.
Roberts says if a voter wears political attire and refuses to change or leave, poll workers have been trained to call for law enforcement.
