Outside the Polling Place

Outside the polling place, there is a 40-foot Prohibited Area , which provides voters unimpeded access to the building.

State law prohibits loitering, congregating, or electioneering within 40 feet of a polling place entrance (i.e. the building entrance, NOT the voting room entrance). Restricted activities include, but are not limited to, campaigning, handing out flyers, and bake sales.

These activities are permitted outside of the 40-foot Prohibited Area.
