Drawing the Line in Montgomery County

From the Montgomery County Courier comes this amusing/appalling story about electioneering, and the lengths to which the county election administrator has gone to preserve the peace near the main early-voting polling location.

One problem with an approach like this is that it leaves the impression that the distance from a polling place to the area where electioneering can occur has to be measured with precision and marked off. An easier and more common-sense approach is to roughly estimate where signs and shouting supporters can stand so that they won’t interfere with voters attempting to enter the polls.

Maybe the next step should be the erection of a geodesic hemispherical dome over the polling place.
