The arrest occurred outside the Leighton Township offices in Allegan County. Katherine Henry said she was handcuffed, placed in a sheriff’s vehicle, and told she would be taken to jail. However, she was soon after released and given a misdemeanor trespassing citation.
According to the Michigan Election Law 168.744, it states:
(2) A person shall not solicit donations, gifts, contributions, purchase of tickets, or similar demands, or request or obtain signatures on petitions in a polling room, in a compartment connected to a polling room, or within 100 feet from any entrance to a building in which a polling place is located.
Henry's trial will be held at 9am on Wednesday, July 21 at the Allegan County District Courthouse, 113 Chestnut St, Allegan, M 49010.
