INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Election Day is here in Indiana, and after casting your ballot you may feel the urge to take a “ballot selfie.” But have you wondered whether it’s legal?
Ballot selfies are pictures people take of themselves with their ballots or in the act of voting. Laws nationwide are mixed on whether voters can legally take these selfies.
Federal judges have struck down bans on selfies in at least two states, and rules have changed in others. But in many states, taking a picture of your ballot still carries potential fines or jail terms.
However, fortunately for selfie-loving Hoosiers, it is perfectly legal to take a ballot selfie in Indiana. In fact, last October, a federal judge barred Indiana from enforcing a new law that would prohibit voters from taking ballot selfies.
