El. Bd. Op. 1981-03

An incumbent municipal clerk who is running for re-election should not be stationed at the polling place while ballots are being cast. This preserves the integrity of the election, removes the appearance of impropriety and eliminates the opportunity to violate the statutory prohibitions on electioneering.
