A West Hollywood poll worker was released from duty after showing up in Donald Trump’s garb.
The man working the table for the California retirement election wore a “Trump 2020” hat, a “Trump Train” mask, and a “Where’s Hunter?” Trump inspired t-shirt.

Fellow poll workers noted that he was inappropriate when he was working at the polling place and when the Los Angeles County Recorder spoke with him, he decided to relieve him based on his responses.
“This worker was contacted after this was reported and was informed that the outfit was not appropriate,” the registrar said in a tweet on Tuesday. “He no longer works as a poll worker.”
While the registrar did not notice what the man was violating, the state of California does have electoral bans at polling places that include:
● Campaign clothing / buttons / stickers / posters
● Campaign materials / Signs / Banners / Literature
● Influencing voters / Soliciting votes / Political persuasion
● Circulation of petitions / request for signatures
● Projection of sounds that refer to candidates / problems
California election laws generally allow attire with political slogans, but a candidate’s name cannot be displayed.
