Voter Registration
#1
So my wife and I were walking around West Lancaster, yesterday, when an older guy who looked a lot like Bernie Sanders walked up and asked us if we were registered to vote. I replied to him that we were, we were voting for Trump, and that he needed to remove his "Hillary - '16" sticker from his shirt. He told me it was OK, because it was his personal belief and he wasn't "selling" it to anyone. I reminded him of his impartiality obligation and that he clearly was in violation of such. He mumbled something under his breath and moved on.

No person, when within the polling place, shall electioneer or solicit votes for any political party, political body or candidate, nor shall
any written or printed matter be posted up within the said room,
except as required by this act.
All persons, except election officers, clerks, machine inspectors, overseers, watchers, persons in the course of voting, persons lawfully giving assistance to voters, and peace and police officers, when permitted by the provisions of this act, must remain at least ten (10) feet
distant from the polling place during the progress of the voting.
(Pa. Consol. Stat. Ann. § 3060©; (d))

If this Bernie guy was not working for a polling place and just trying to register Democrats, he did nothing wrong. You can go door to door with a Trump hat and ask people if they are registered to vote and even entreat them to vote for Trump. Not a problem.
Hopefully he got discouraged by all the Trump voters he encountered and gave up.

I'll have to disagree. Check out page 22, where it talks about not displaying any party affiliation, or candidate preference...

I am not sure of the exact situation where you met this guy but it sounded like you were walking along minding your own business and were accosted by a Hillary supporter.
The rules you linked are for state employees like a DMV worker who may also help you to register to vote while you are there for a driver license.
It does not apply to private citizens like a schmuck on the street who is a DNC volunteer with a crush on Hillary.

Yeah, I realized that after I posted it, but after searching for a while, I couldn't find anything for or against. I finally just sent an email to some official state address and asked them. I'll let you know what they reply with, if anything.
