Lansing, Really? Taking ‘Selfies’ While You Vote Could Soon Be Legal
The idea is that people are proud of voting, and Michigan legislators are working on a new bill that would let voters share that pride on social networking sites.
My first thought is “really Lansing”? See what you think.
As of now, Michigan law strictly using cameras and recording devices in poling places.
A new piece of legislation, House Bill 477, could change that. The bill, introduced in March, would add language to Michigan’s election law stating that “an elector may use a camera, including, but not limited to, a cellular telephone camera, in a polling place to take a photograph of himself or herself.”
The premise is that people are proud of voting, and should be able to share that pride in the form of a “selfie”, taken while voting, on social networking sights.
Is this an issue that our Senators and State Representatives should be concerned about right now? Click here for other crazy ideas that Lansing is considering.
