  • Q: Are there any rules that apply to media activity at a polling place?
    • When either within the polling location or within 100 feet from the entrance to the room containing a polling place, media should not:

      • Talk to voters who are in the process of checking in or casting their ballot.
      • Touch any official record, ballot or voting equipment.
      • Bring or ask any voter to bring campaign items or literature inside the polling place.
      • Interview voters about their choices.
      • Interfere with polling place officials or obstruct the election process.
      • Compromise the secrecy of a voter’s ballot.
      • Talk on cell phones.

      Texting is permitted inside a polling place, but not while voting. All telephone conversations must take place outside of the polling location. Please contact the County Auditor in the county were the polling place is located for additional rules.
