Are you thinking about posting a “ballot selfie?” Be aware, it’s technically against the law in Wisconsin.
“You can’t mark your ballot and then show it to someone and say ‘here’s how I voted,'” said Reid Magney the Wisconsin Elections Commission. “The reason for that is so you don’t get paid for how you vote. Because if somebody was going to offer you 10 bucks to go in and vote for somebody, they would presumably do that only if you could prove that that’s how you voted.”
Magney said that although laws in other states that specifically ban ballot selfies have been ruled unconstitutional, you could be subject to a complaint if you post a picture to social media. “You may have a visit from the police and end up answering questions about it. If you don’t want that, it’s best not to post your ballot to social media.”
In at least two cases, however, ballot selfies have been more about media focus. “You saw the story about Justin Timberlake and you’re calling me. We had the issue in the partisan primary in August with Paul Nehlen, who posted a picture on Twitter of his ballot. We got a lot of calls from the media,” Magney said.
Nehlen’s selfie apparently didn’t get him in any trouble either, but you should think twice before you post.
