This  bill would have removed the prohibition on early voting electioneering on the property of early voting sites, resolving a conflict with the electioneering prohibition zone.  One section of the WV code states that electioneering cannot take place on the "property" of an early voting location.  A more recent law says that electioneering cannot take place within 100 feet of the entrance of a polling location.  On polling places such as malls or large government complexes, prohibitions on being on the property at all are over-broad.
