BOSTON – Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign received a warning from the Secretary of the Commonwealth on Super Tuesday after Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton was photographed mingling with voters inside a polling venue in West Roxbury.
WCVB News and Boston media outlets reported Clinton’s visit inside the West Roxbury polling location where Clinton shook hands, mingled and posed for selfies with voters and poll workers.
The Clinton camp was made aware of the possible infraction of the prohibition of campaigning and soliciting votes within 150 feet of the polling area.
The New York Times reported that Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin was contacted regarding the situation. “We had to remind some of our poll workers that even a president can’t go inside and work a polling place,” Galvin said.
Clinton spent Super Tuesday morning in the Commonwealth visiting with voters in several locations across the state, including Taunton, New Bedford. Newton and West Roxbury.
There was no response from the Commonwealth Secretary’s office at the time of this writing.
