Nudists seek clothing-optional voting


UPI News Service, 10/31/2008 

Residents of the clothing-optional Caliente Resorts in Land O' Lakes, Fla., said they are lobbying to create the first clothing-optional U.S. polling place.

Caliente spokeswoman Angye Fox said the resort wants to make it easier for the nudist community to vote, by establishing a polling place within the clothing-optional area so residents will no longer have to visit a nearby subdivision, which requires clothing, to cast their ballots, the Tampa (Fla.) Tribune reported Friday.

Resort administrators said they discussed the prospect with Brian Corley, Pasco County's supervisor of elections, but the official said he does not plan to "even consider" opening additional polling places until after the scheduled 2010 redistricting.

Jennifer Davis, a spokeswoman for the Florida Secretary of State's Office, said a nude polling place would not violate any state laws.

"That would be up to the local supervisor," she said.
