New York finally went to the polls today after weeks of catering (literally) to presidential candidates. There’ve been some complaints — everything from sticker shortages to shuttered polling stations — but others are celebrating the fact that the New York primary finally matters. And there’s no better way to celebrate doing one’s civic duty than by taking a ballot selfie.
There’s some question about how legal these photos are — snapping a picture of a filled-in ballot may actually violate state election law — but really, how else would a vote count if it’s not also on Instagram?
There are the photos of ballots. If you’ve forgotten how to fill in a multiple-choice bubble, these are for you.
The “I Was Here” polling-place selfie.
Then there are the post-voting sticker selfies. If you didn’t get a sticker, blame these people.
The biggest get, of course, is the future First Lady selfie.
