Posting Your Election Ballot Online Is No Longer A Crime

If you want to take a selfie with your election ballot and post it online, you can now do so without penalty. The U.S. Supreme Court kept a federal appeals court ruling in place that struck down the ban back in September on free-speech grounds.

New Hampshire officials who brought the suit argued that by posting ballots online was a way to buy votes in the technological age. The appeals court rejected that argument saying their concerns were too broad. In it's opinion, the court offered: "The ballot-selfie prohibition is like 'burn[ing down] the house to roast the pig.'"

So selfie away!
