    The State. Ideas so good they have to be mandatory.

    Rather than just saying so, perhaps attempt to explain? I fail to see how it matters even a little.

    I'm not defending the law.
    I'm not here anymore.

    It is a tangible connection. People react to that. Further, I don't have to justify why I prefer a certain method of expressing my free speech.

    I didn't suggest you were.

    I don't get the power of it though, you know?

    All my ballot selfies are at the free county pickup location so technically it's the SASE anyone's actually seeing.

  7. Amen Carrikature amen'd this post.

    I do since I use social media in my role as Communications Director - the actual thing is pretty compelling.

    But then again some people think the "Piss Jesus" was compelling. I don't. But they have the right to do it with their right to free expression.

    so not only can't you show your ballot, you can't even SAY who you voted for, after you vote? Who the heck came up with that law?

    So much for "exit polling".

    So apparently the reason you are not allowed to take a selfie with a completed ballot is supposed to be to prevent coercion. Like if someone held a gun to your wife's head and said, vote Clinton and take a selfie proving it, or you wife gets it.
