What’s the harm in a ballot selfie?

LANSING – Pics or it didn’t happen

That’s a phrase many millennials have come to live by in the age of smartphones, social media and selfies. But when it comes to casting your ballot, Michigan law doesn’t quite agree. Regardless of where or when you’re voting, documenting your ballot with a photo is against state law. That hasn’t deterred some voters from snapping and sharing ballot selfies, unintentionally breaking the law, said Rep. Sam Singh, D-East Lansing, who has sought to repeal the restriction. According to a recent report by the Associated Press, 21 states and Washington, D.C., allow ballot selfies, while 16 states prohibit them with the threat of fines and even jail time.
