Hillary Clinton's Campaign Reminded About Election Laws After Ex-President Greets Voters

Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin is reminding Hillary Clinton's campaign about state election laws after former President Bill Clinton greeted voters inside a Boston polling location.

The ex-president arrived at the Holy Name gymnasium, in the city's West Roxbury neighborhood, around 9:35 a.m. Tuesday.

He spoke with voters outside the gym before heading inside with Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, a Hillary Clinton supporter.

A pool report says a woman asked for a photo with the ex-president, who replied, "As long as we're not violating any election laws."

State law says no one may solicit a person's vote within 150 feet of a polling location.

Galvin says Bill Clinton created a traffic jam outside a New Bedford polling location later in the day when he addressed voters on the street.
