Electioneering should not be allowed within 1000 Feet of the Polls

The candidates for public office often treat the voters like morons.  The law in New York State forbids electioneering within 100 feet of the polls.  I vote at PS 214 in Flushing and every time I vote they are 101 feet from the poll on the same block as the school.  Over the past months I have heard enough on TV, radio, and newspapers from the candidates running in the primary for citywide office.  Certainly anyone with half a brain has his mind made while they are walking to their polling place.  Yet there are people campaigning handing out flyers.  One time I changed my vote because a campaigner was aggressive and too close to the school.  I think the limit should be raised from 100 feet to 1000 feet so they are completely away from the building.

I arrived home at 5:45 PM and have received 6 phone calls in two hours.  I am not answering my phone.  Perhaps Mr. Weiner will send me a text message.  I should vote the candidate who doesn't phone.
