So when the Attorney General's campaign violates the law, who do you contact, exactly?

Lots of instances at this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/electionjournal/

WOW! What is the law - 100 or 200 feet?

What's the law in Mass? I know in VT signs can be no closer than 50ft from the entrance to the polling place.

I think it varies from state to state. GA doesn't allow campaigning out to 150 ft.

I seem to recall that BJ Lawson was practically walking people to the door in North Carolina ;)

In Mass it is apparently 150 feet.

I assumed that the guy knew what he was talking about when he named his photostream, which is a very dangerous mistake to make when one is on the internet. I got lucky!
