    The disclosure of all questions and responses must be made to the state Board of Elections, according to this regulation:

    § 6201.2 Use of public opinion polls.
    No candidate, political party or committee shall attempt to promote the success or defeat of a candidate by, directly or indirectly, disclosing or
    causing to be disclosed, the results of a poll relating to a candidate for such office or position, unless within 48 hours after such disclosure, they provide the following information concerning the poll to the board or officer with whom statements or copies of statements of campaign receipts and expenditures are required to be filed by the candidate to whom such poll relates:
    (a) The name of the person, party, or organization that contracted for or who commissioned the poll and/or paid for it.
    (b) The name and address of the organization that conducted the poll.
    (c) The numerical size of the total poll sample, the geographic area covered by the poll and any special characteristics of the population included in the poll sample.
    (d) The exact wording of the questions asked in the poll and the sequence of such questions.
    (e) The method of polling -- whether by personal interview, telephone, mail, or other.
    (f) The time period during which the poll was conducted.

    •  Is Maloney a candidate? (0+ / 0-)

      I dont think she's an official candidate and she's not a party or a committee. I don't think this law would pertain to her.
