According to Raleigh’s ABC Channel 11 news, Hillary Clinton has just been attained by Raleigh police for campaigning at an early polling location.
She showed up with a few other campaign staff members at an early voting location on Sunday in Raleigh, North Carolina, in clear violation of electioneering laws.
Clinton was “mobbed” at the early voting location at Chavis Community Center, reported ABC’s Tim Pulliam:

According to NC polling regulations, her actions were in clear violation of NC state law:
N.C.G.S. §163-166.4(a) states, “No person or group of persons shall hinder access, harass others, distribute campaign literature, place political advertising, solicit votes, or otherwise engage in election-related activity in the voting place or in a buffer zone…”
The buffer zone will be 50 feet from the entrance to the polling place except where deemed by the Wake County Board of Elections to be necessarily closer, but no less than 25 feet from the entrance to the polling place. There will be publication of information regarding the entrance location and distance of the buffer zone no later than 30 days before the election.
After she was briefly paraded around the courtroom, her campaign secured her bail and she was released within 2 hours of her initial detainment.
They are currently determining when her court date will be, if they can get the charges to stick.
