BOSTON — Banning ballot selfies in New Hampshire has been denied by the First Circuit Court of Appeals on the grounds that it violates the right to free speech under the First Amendment.
"Ballot selfies have taken on a special communicative value: they both express support for a candidate and communicate that the voter has in fact given his or her vote to that candidate," the court said.
The law to ban a person from displaying a photograph of a marked ballot became effective on Sept. 1, 2014. The violation to this offense was punishable by a fine of up to $1,000.
