Electioneering Boundaries Set

Fri, 01 Mar 2019 08:09:48 CST

The Montgomery County Clerk's office recently announced the boundaries where no electioneering should take place during early voting hours at the Historic Courthouse in Hillsboro.

State law says that if a polling room is located within a public or private building with two or more floors and the polling room is located on the ground floor, then the markers shall be placed 100 horizontal feet from each entrance to the polling room used by voters.

Electioneering is defined as working for or against or in the interest of a party, candidate or proposition. No electioneering or political signage will be allowed within all parking spaces located in the inner circle of the Courthouse Square, five parking spaces located on the west side of the Historic Courthouse in front of the Farm Bureau Building, and five parking spaces located on the north side of the Historic Courthouse. Violation of this law could result in a Class A Misdemeanor.

A copy of the electioneering boundaries map can be found on the county clerk's website, clerk. Anyone with questions about electioneering is encouraged to contact the county clerk's office at 532-9530.
