Voters across California voted Tuesday for the recall election.
A Los Angeles-area polling worker dressed in support of former President Trump was removed from a polling place on Tuesday after election officials advised her that her dress was “inappropriate and unacceptable.”
A spokesman for the Los Angeles County registrar-recorder/county clerk’s office told Granthshala News that the unidentified worker was seen at a polling place at Plummer Park Community Center in West Hollywood. One photo showed him wearing a “Trump 2020” hat and a T-shirt that read: “Where Hunter” and “Trump 2020” as he sat behind a laptop.

The registrar-recorder’s office said in a tweet that he has been released from the polling station.
“Based on his feedback and reports that other activists had earlier advised him on this, he was released and is no longer working at the vote center,” the officials said.
The spokesman said election workers are not allowed to wear political attire while on duty. Typically, election workers help set up polling, assist voters when they sign in, and issue and eat ballots.
Voters across California voted Tuesday for the recall election. He will be asked whether to replace Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom and who should take office. Recall supporters hail the election’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If voters approve Newsom’s replacement, whoever wins a majority of the 46 candidates to lead the state becomes governor.
