Add this is what I found out â€” 1. Electioneering Maryland law prohibits electioneering within 100 feet of the entrance or exit to a polling place on election day. The 100-foot “No Electioneering” zone is measured from the entrance/exit of the building closest to the room in which voting actually takes place. No electioneering means that no canvassing, electioneering, campaigning, or posting of any campaign material is permitted within the zone. “Posting of any campaign material” is broadly interpreted to mean the wearing of any article of clothing, hat, sticker, or button that indicates support of or opposition to any candidate, question, or political party. The Chief Election Judges at each polling place post signs designating the “No Electioneering” zone. Election judges are instructed to strictly enforce the “No Electioneering” prohibition, including calling the police to enforce it, if necessary. A person who violates the prohibition is guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $500, or imprisonment for not more than 60 days, or both.
