Governor Jerry Brown passes ballot selfies bill

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Say goodbye to scenery selfies or selfies with your food or drinks and say hello to taking ballot selfies.  California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill last month that allows Californians to legally take pictures with their marked ballots after the California Assembly voted 57-11 to send the legislation to the governor.

The so-called "ballot selfies bill" was created and presented by Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) as an attempt to help increase the state’s poor voter turnout.
