  1. It’s probably a good idea. In the last election I was surprised to see how many people were outside the voting place at the high school. Polling places are supposed to be kept free of gatherings to allow people to vote without fear of scrutiny. The drop box is a new kind of polling place and should be treated as one.

  2. Political parties and candidates are allowed to speak with voters, post tents, distribute materials and display signs as long as they are 75 feet from the polling place. In theory, the drop box is not a polling place, because people will have already filled out and sealed their ballots. That said, I suppose there could be intimidation about dropping one’s ballot in the box, but that seems unlikely.
