    I am **SO** glad I don't live in a city.

    City folk seem so easily offended - by just about anything and everything that they disagree with, and then they want to sue someone because of it. Hell, city folk can't even hang their laundry out to dry in their own backyards anymore - afterall, it might offend someone!

    Nevermind that it saves energy and money; we just can't have Aunt Maggies' drawers flapping in the breeze...

    This is really about electioneering law, not city living or being offended. Every State has a similar law for ALL polling places within the State. Any country bumpkin could make the same call, I hope.

    I quote from the first post above
    ""They contacted all kinds of people in Kansas government about what to do. Apparently at one point, they were thinking about towing my car," Keiser said.

    The car wasn't towed, but an officer wrote her a ticket.

    "The officer seemed as confused as I did and a little uncomfortable," she said. "(The ticket) stated that my car is a campaign vehicle, which obviously took me aback."

    You are correct.

    From first post….
    The law states that no one can campaign within 250 feet of a polling place.
    From the State of Kansas….

    SB 128 was approved by the Legislature … The measure changes the crime of “electioneering at polling places” to “electioneering.” It expands the law to include “attempting to persuade or influence” eligible voters to vote for or against a particular candidate.
    Valid Ticket.
