Bill Clinton has recently been under fire for "blocking a polling station." Further investigation reveals that anyone can solicit outside of a polling station in MA as long as they are 150 feet from the station.
Within 150 feet of a polling place as defined in 950 CMR 53.03(18)(c), no person shall solicit votes for or against, or otherwise promote or oppose, any person or political party or position on a ballot question, to be voted on at the current election.
My question instead is directed towards President Clinton's security and his actual presence.
Is it legal for Clinton's security to block access to a polling station? Further, is there a question of legality in President Clinton's presence creating a situation that caused access to the polls to be hindered?
