Ballot Selfies: Yes or No? Check This List of States


So, today is finally the day y’all responsible citizens go out and rock the vote. Good luck, vote smart, and do your country proud. It needs every single one of you.

In the meantime, what about a ballot selfie? Surely it sounds like a great way to stand tall and say “Hey! Voting is important and I did my part!” Though are you sure you’re in the right state to do that?

At present, New York is one of the states to ban ballot selfies, according to a court decision made earlier this month. Taking a ballot selfie in one of the 18 states that say No could land you a fine or even get you arrested. (Which perhaps is why some of them have a photo station, like with this guy’s tweet below.)

20 states, however, do allow this type of selfie, while 12 states are rather fuzzy on the rules. Just to make sure, here’s a list of those states for your reference.

Ballot selfies: Yes

  • Connecticut
  • District of Columbia
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Indiana
  • Kentucky
  • Lousiana
  • Maine
  • Minnesota
  • Montana
  • Nebraska
  • New Hampshire
  • North Dakota
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island
  • Utah
  • Vermont
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • Wyoming

Ballot Selfies: No

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Illinois
  • Kansas
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Mississippi
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Wisconsin

Better safe than sorry, folks.

There are some people, though, who do see the good that a selfie can do, like this one:

And while Ted Cruz is not in the running anymore, a ballot selfie is still a ballot selfie. Of sorts.
