Canine electioneering in a polling place?
It’s illegal to hold political signs or pass out fliers within a polling place, but MassINC Director of Public Affairs Emily Wood might have discovered a loophole to the law this morning:
7:40 Hamilton School South Weymouth – Precincts 17 & 18 – 17 had a line of about 30 people who were waiting to submit their ballots. I was in the line for 18 which had 3 people in front of me and maybe 2 behind. I was in and out in 10 minutes. The most unusual, and I suspect illegal, thing I saw was a woman who brought a greyhound dog inside the school.
Pure coincidence that a proposal to ban greyhound racing is on the ballot…
