Because of the situation in Newton, Mr. Galvin said that his office called ahead to Mr. Clinton’s next stop, in New Bedford, to remind those poll workers of the rules.

“He can go in, but he can’t approach voters,” Mr. Galvin said. “We just took the extra precaution of telling them because this is not a usual occurrence. You don’t usually get a president doing this.”
