DIVA AWARENESS: NO SNAPPIN WHEN VOTING!

Is it Against the Law to Share your Vote on Social Networks?

Think before you snap a pic of your completed voting ballot!




You may want to think twice about sharing your ballot on social network sites: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. Depending on your state, it can be considered a misdemeanor.

Per iSmash phone.com:
Citizen Media Law went through the trouble of breaking down what each state allows and doesn’t allow, so we will direct you to them for more information. Just remember to make sure you aren’t breaking a law in your state.Gizmodo put it in much simpler terms, which basically boils down to a “yes” or “no.”
Of course, even then it’s a little tricky. For instance, in Texas, where I live, you can disclose your vote, but you cannot record within 100 feet of a voting station.


State that it is IIIegal to Instagram Your Ballot:

Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and West Virginia all have laws banning photography or videography in polling places, according to the Citizen Media Law Project.
