Florida, Nov. 4, 2008
A 350 member nudist community in Florida sought a polling place where individuals who wish can vote in the nude. The nudists argue that current obscenity laws prevent them from exercising their Constitutional right to vote unless they conform to the dress code of others. "It's the equivalent of a literacy test." said one member of the group. A spokeswoman for the nudists said they are not making any extraordinary demands, they would be satisfied if an existing voting site were made "clothing optional." "We don't object to others wearing clothes while they vote; we just want the same rights." A spokesman for the Florida Elections Commission declined to comment.
