You would think that taking a photo of your ballot and sharing it with your friends through your social media networks is a good idea. Well it’s not. For those of us who don’t really like to follow politics, or talk about it, we might have missed out on the very important fact that uploading a photo of your ballot is illegal. I was surprised to find out that the government is taking initiative on implementing laws regarding the rapidly growing social media.
While making the line for registering and voting, you may realize that there are many signs that say, “DO NOT TAKE PHOTOS, Texting is allowed.” The reason for this is that in many states it is illegal to do so and you are subject to invalidating your vote. It would be a shame that after you spent all that time waiting for your turn, you take yourself out of the race by simply uploading a picture. I might be a little dated on the voting “dos and don’t” but its just a reminder for everyone who avoids politics as much as I do. Remember to vote if you are eligible!
