Today’s the day we, as Americans, pick the next leader of the free world. As you’re getting out to vote today (or if you already have), here’s something to keep in mind: certain states expressly prohibit taking photos / videos at your polling station and of your ballot. Others don’t have any laws against it.
Use this guide to find your state and check any applicable laws prior to posting anything on your social media sites, blogs, etc. It could save you a lot of trouble. In Wisconsin, for example, posting a photo of your ballot could get you 18 months in jail and a fine north of $100,000.
