In what many are calling a violation of election law, Hillary Clinton campaigned outside an early voting location in North Carolina, something that is expressly prohibited by polling station regulations. This is the second time Hillary has engaged in such behavior, with her campaigning outside polling locations in New York earlier this year.
But Hillary's not the only one has taken part in this blatantly illegal activity: Bill campaigned during the Democratic primary outside a Chicago polling station, leading Bernie Sanders supporters to start a petition to arrest the former president.
Campaign staffer Michael Gwin also posted a photo from her appearance, claiming ‘she decided to check it out for herself.'
But she wasn’t just there to ‘check it out.' She blatantly campaigned.
North Carolina AIDS Action Network Executive Director Lee Storrow posted a photo, noting Clinton was ‘hanging at the polling site.'
Her appearance is potentially a violation of state and local election laws.
According to polling location regulations implemented by Wake County — the governmental unit that oversees electioneering laws:
N.C.G.S. §163-166.4(a) states, “No person or group of persons shall hinder access, harass others, distribute campaign literature, place political advertising, solicit votes, or otherwise engage in election-related activity in the voting place or in a buffer zone…”
The buffer zone will be 50 feet from the entrance to the polling place except where deemed by the Wake County Board of Elections to be necessarily closer, but no less than 25 feet from the entrance to the polling place. There will be publication of information regarding the entrance location and distance of the buffer zone no later than 30 days before the election.
