Illinois: Ballot selfies could mean jail time

VOTE

CHICAGO — Take a selfie in the voting booth this year, and your next selfie may be in a jail cell.

It’s illegal in Illinois to take a picture of yourself with your filled-out ballot.

A lot of young voters wanted to take those pictures as mementos of their first voting experience; but the state says marking your ballot and photographing it can get you one to three years behind bars.

On the other hand, if you live and vote in Indiana, it’s perfectly legal.
