Did Bill Clinton Break Voting Laws in Massachusetts?

While stumping for his wife in Massachusetts today, former President Bill Clinton stopped by a polling location in West Roxbury where he spoke to supporters, shook hands, took photos with people, and bought a cup of coffee.


But his presence at the location is raising eyebrows among many Twitter users, who are wondering whether he broke the commonwealth's election laws.

Here’s a photo of Clinton, Walsh, and a voter posing with a ballot in West Roxbury today:

“How is this legal?” one person asked on the social media platform.

The Secretary of the Commonwealth’s voting regulations state the following, according to Boston Magazine.

“Within 150 feet of a polling place…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,”the text reads. In addition, campaign operatives are prohibited from distributing “campaign material intended to influence the vote of a voter in the ongoing election” within 150 of a polling location.

The question, then, is this: Does Clinton or Walsh’s presence alone constitute “campaign material”?

What do you think?
