Taking “ballot selfies” would be legal in future Michigan elections under bipartisan legislation approved Wednesday by the House Elections Committee. The proposal would end Michigan’s longstanding ballot exposure ban by allowing voters to use cameras, including cellphone cameras, to photograph themselves or their ballot in polling places or polling booths.
“The First Amendment right to free speech is primarily for political speech,” said sponsoring Rep. Steven Johnson, R-Wayland. “In today’s day and age, social media is often how people support their candidates and their causes.” Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office is defending the state’s ballot selfie ban in federal court, arguing it was implemented to prevent vote buying and coercion.
