-----------------

For example, the law in Kentucky says......

Kentucky

No person shall electioneer at the polling place on the day of any election within a distance of one hundred (100) feet of any entrance to a building in which a voting machine is located if that entrance is unlocked and is used by voters on election day. Electioneering shall include the displaying of signs, the distribution of campaign literature, cards, or handbills, the soliciting of signatures to any petition, or the solicitation of votes for or against any bona fide candidate or ballot question in a manner which expressly advocates the election or defeat of the candidate or expressly advocates the passage or defeat of the ballot question, but shall not include exit polling, bumper stickers affixed to a person's vehicle while parked within or passing through a distance of one hundred (100) feet of any entrance to a building in which a voting machine is located, private property , or other exceptions established by the State Board of Elections through the promulgation of administrative regulations. (Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. 117.235(3))

2. That's not far

we have a similar law. My polling place is a school. There are signs at the street in front of the school and as far into the parking lot as they can go to be outside the boundary!

7. I don't understand why people even bother.

All that stuff is not going to change anyone's vote as late as on election day.

8. true, it must be that feeling Americans have

that you have to be doing something, that leads to that.

I was in Australia during their elections. They actually stopped campaigning some number of hours before, I think it was 2 days. I thought that was awesome.
