Schmitt Breaking Election Law

It looks like Schmitt is electioneering within 100 feet of a polling place.
Big no-no.
But we know that Schmitt doesn't worry much about the law.

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 the
polling place, or within a one hundred foot radial measured from the entrances,
designated by the inspectors of election, to a building where the registration is
being conducted. No political banner, poster or placard shall be allowed in or
upon the place of registration during any day of registration. Where an oath is
required or permitted by this article at any meeting for registration, any inspector
may administer it. The inspectors, and each of them, shall preserve good order
within 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 any
person refusing to obey the lawful commands of the inspectors, or guilty of disorderly
conduct disturbing their proceedings, or violating, or attempting to violate,
any of the provisions of this chapter."
