SLIDESHOW: State-by-state breakdown of where ballot selfies are allowed

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV/AP) -

With Election Day less than two weeks away, you probably already know who you're voting for on Election Day. The question in today's digital age - is it OK to for you to post proof who you voted for?

The legality of "ballot selfies" has been called into question this week after singer Justin Timberlake Timberlake flew from California to Tennessee to vote early. 

He then posted a photo on his social media account to his millions of fans showing himself at the voting booth Monday.

The photos immediatedly drew questions about whether he was breaking the law. A Tennessee law that took effect earlier this year bars voters from taking photographs or video while they're inside a polling location.

Laws nationwide are mixed on whether voters can legally take "ballot selfies." 

Federal judges have struck down bans on selfies in at least two states, and rules have changed in others. But in many states, taking a picture of your ballot still carries potential fines or jail terms.

Federal courts have struck down bans in New Hampshire and Indiana, and on Monday, a judge in Michigan blocked enforcement of a ban on ballot selfies, saying it violates free speech.

Rules have been changed in California and Rhode Island.

Also Monday, a Colorado state lawmaker and a voter filed suit in federal court saying the law violates free speech.

Deputy Secretary of State Suzanne Staiert said the law defends the integrity of elections and protects voters from intimidation or inducement.

The lawsuit named the secretary of state and attorney general as defendants. The attorney general's office declined to comment.

Ohio has a longstanding prohibition against electors letting their ballot be seen by another person with the "apparent intention" of letting it be known how they are about to vote. 

The penalty is a fifth-degree felony. The law is intended to prevent voter intimidation and fraud.

Republican Reps. Niraj Antani and Mike Duffey of Worthington are sponsoring a bill they say will let voters photograph and make public their marked ballots.

A review by The Associated Press found 18 states have laws against sharing ballot photos. Six other states bar photography in polling places but permit photos of mail-in ballots.
