A state-by-state guide to taking selfies when you vote

- Advertisement -

Good for you! You’re heading out to the polls (or the dropbox) to vote. You should be proud that you’re fulfilling your role in our democracy. You may even want to snap a photo to show off your civic duty.

But check the rules first. In some states, taking photos of any kind at polling places is illegal or discouraged. Mail-in and drop-box voters aren’t off the hook, either, since some states forbid photographing ballots. Even in more permissive states, courtesy and common sense are key: You should avoid disrupting the voting process, and you never want to infringe upon someone else’s privacy.

If you’re ever in doubt, ask a poll worker or play it safe and just post that spiffy “I voted” sticker once you’re done.

Here’s a rundown of every state’s laws and recommendations when it comes to ballot selfies and voting photos.

  2. 559458 858564Hey! Do you use Twitter? Id like to follow you if that would be ok. Im definitely enjoying your blog and appear forward to new updates. 287838

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

  4. Wow, amazing blog structure! How long have you ever been running a blog for? you made running a blog look easy. The total look of your website is fantastic, as smartly as the content!
