Don’t try to reach voters near polling stations 

The Director of the Department of Elections John Arntz issued an advisory Thursday to remind everyone that there is electioneering within 100 feet of a polling place. It comes as voters head to the polls on June 8.

In other words, don’t try and sway voters near polling stations.

“Electioneering is any visible or audible activity that advocates for or against any candidate or measure on the ballot. This includes signage, clothing, buttons, or materials like pens and brochures that carry messages about items on the ballot,” the advisory says.

Voters can be surveyed on how they voted within 25 feet of a polling station.
