I'm printing this to take to the polls!
I am sick and tired of being HARASSED, as I approach the polls on elections day. I knew there was a law and I found it!
MICHIGAN ELECTION LAW (EXCERPT)
Act 116 of 1954
168.744 Prohibited acts; violation as misdemeanor.
(1) An election inspector or any other person in the polling room or in a compartment connected to the polling room or within 100 feet from any entrance to the building in which the polling place is located shall not persuade or endeavor to persuade a person to vote for or against any particular candidate or party ticket, or for or against any ballot question that is being voted on at the election. A person shall not place or distribute stickers, other than stickers provided by the election officials pursuant to law, in the polling room or in a compartment connected to the polling room or within 100 feet from any entrance to the building in which the polling place is located.
(2) A person shall not solicit donations, gifts, contributions, purchase of tickets, or similar demands, or request or obtain signatures on petitions in the polling room or in a compartment connected to the polling room or within 100 feet from any entrance to the building in which the polling place is located.
(3) On election day, a person shall not post, display, or distribute in a polling place, in any hallway used by voters to enter or exit a polling place, or within 100 feet of an entrance to a building in which a polling place is located any material that directly or indirectly makes reference to an election, a candidate, or a ballot question. This subsection does not apply to official material that is required by law to be posted, displayed, or distributed in a polling place on election day.

if they do be sure to stab them with a screwdriver and tell them that's what it feels like to be harrased. Then hand them the printout........

Yup :) By law, they have to be 100 feet away from the entrance to the polling location. If they're too close, tell the election chairperson for your precinct, they'll be there. My mom is chair for one here in Madison Heights, they get to call the cops if they won't move back peaceably.
For the Primary, bunch of tools were sitting on a car telling everyone to vote no on proposals r2 and v2, no new taxes, we know how YOU'RE gonna vote, no more taxes, that's the ticket... I looked at 'em and told them that it's people like them that make people like me not want to come up and VOTE!
