Umm, see those orange signs? They say that if you're in front of those orange signs you can electioneer there, you can't electioneer past those orange signs.
You didn't think our cunning plan all the way through. Election law states 100 feet from entrane to polling place. Those signs aren't 100 feet and neither is Schmitt.Thanks for playing, please try again.
The signs are placed 100 feet from where the physical polls are actually, that's how the Nassau BoE plays it. If the polls are in the back of the building, the election workers measure from where the actual machines are. Call them and ask them, they'll tell you the same.
Sorry but NYS election law trumps whateve a hack republican at nassau BoE says.."9. While the polls are open no person shall do any electioneering within thepolling place, or within a one hundred foot radial measured from the entrances,designated by the inspectors of election, to a building where the registration isbeing conducted. No political banner, poster or placard shall be allowed in orupon the place of registration during any day of registration. Where an oath isrequired or permitted by this article at any meeting for registration, any inspectormay administer it. The inspectors, and each of them, shall preserve good orderwithin and around the place of registration and keep access thereto unobstructed.The board or any member thereof by order in writing may direct the arrest of anyperson refusing to obey the lawful commands of the inspectors, or guilty of disorderlyconduct disturbing their proceedings, or violating, or attempting to violate,any of the provisions of this chapter."http://www.elections.state.ny.us/NYSBOE/download/law/2006NYElectionLaw.pdf
