Georgians, please don't Instagram your ballot. It's illegal. The Peach State has a law that expressly prohibits recording devices in polling places or publicly displaying your ballot, according to the Citizen Media Law Project. In layman's terms, you can't take any pictures or video in a polling place. You especially can't take a picture of your ballot. And you could be pretty screwed if you post said picture online anywhere and your profile is public. Because, yeah, doing illegal things publicly is a bad idea. (FYI, even if you don't crosspost your pic to your Twitter or Facebook, all Instagram profiles now have web addresses associated with them, and if your Instagram is already public, then so is that.)
I boldly predict a Harvard Law grad will win the Presidential election on November 6. Maybe I should put that in boldface type to emphasize just how bold my boldness is.
