Ecection Exception in New Sex Offender Law
The most unenforceable aspects of the 2000 foot sex offender zone are finally going away once Governor Culver signs Senate File 340 (which he's said he will).
Instead of focusing on where offenders live, the new law will focus on where they can be. The bill aims to keep offenders 300 feet away from schools, libraries and other such facilities.
Only the most serious offenders will still be under the 2000 foot restriction which has concentrated sex offenders into the tiny handful of places where it was legal for them to live.
There's a few reasonable exceptions, one of which went unreported: On election day, and offender may go to their polling place if it's in a school "solely for the period of time reasonably necessary to exercise the right to vote in a public election."
