TV Networks Sue South Dakota Over Exit Polling

Published on May 14, 2008, by in General.

On May 12, the nation’s TV networks sued South Dakota, over that state’s decision to keep exit pollsters 100 feet from the entrance of polling places at the June 3, 2008 primary. Exit pollsters in almost all other states are permitted to be 25 feet from the entrance. Similar lawsuits have won in federal court in the past in Florida, Georgia, Montana, Ohio, and Washington. The case is American Broadcasting Company (ABC), et al, v Nelson, 4:08-cv-4068.

    Colorado has a similar 100-foot law, but I have no idea if it has ever been challenged in court.

    Pennsylvania is 10 feet
