Instagrammers, Don't Take a Picture of Your Ballot, OK?

Posted By on Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 5:27 PM

If you posted a picture on Facebook or Twitter showing the world how you voted or how you intended to vote — those beautiful early ballots — you may have broken the law.

Folks at the Citizen Media Law Project put together a chart of the states whose laws prohibit taking pictures of your ballot. You can read the chart here.

BTW: "X" means that there is a law which may prohibit photographing or filming one's own marked ballot. On that note, next there's an X next to Arizona. So, while voting exhibitionism is fun, be careful out there. Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett might be watching, and someone (read: you) could get hurt.
