No officer of election may disclose to any person the name of

any candidate for whom a voter has voted. No officer of election

may do any electioneering on election day. No person may do any

electioneering on election day within any polling place, or within

three hundred feet of the outside entrance to the building housing

the polling place. No person may apply for or receive any ballot

in any polling place, other than that in which he is entitled to

vote, nor may any person examine a ballot which any voter has

prepared for voting, or solicit the voter to show the same, nor

ask, nor make any arrangement, directly or indirectly, with any

voter, to vote an open ballot. No person, except a commissioner of

election, may receive from any voter a ballot prepared by him for

voting. No voter may receive a ballot from any person other than

one of the poll clerks; nor may any person other than a poll clerk

deliver a ballot to a commissioner of election to be voted by such

commissioner. No voter may deliver any ballot to a commissioner of

election to be voted, except the one he receives from the poll

clerk. No voter may place any mark upon his ballot, or suffer or

permit any other person to do so, by which it may be afterward

identified as the ballot voted by him. Whoever violates any

provision of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on

conviction thereof, shall be fined not less than one hundred

dollars nor more than one thousand dollars, or confined in jail for

not more than one year, or both fined and confined.
