In a now-deleted tweet, Eric Trump, son of Republican candidate Donald Trump, showed a photo of his completed ballot. Under New York state election law, that’s a no-no.
It’s a misdemeanor for voters to share their completed election ballot with others in the state, punishable by up to a year incarceration and up to a $1,000 fine, according to state law.
In Baltimore Tuesday, State Attorney Marilyn Mosby tweeted a photo of her daughter with the ballot, causing media in Baltimore to question if she had violated Maryland voting laws. Mosby’s tweet has since been deleted as well.
In October, Justin Timberlake made headlines after taking selfies at a Memphis, Tennessee, voting booth.
