BOSTON - A federal appeals court in Boston will hear arguments on a New Hampshire law that bans posting photos of ballots online.
Under a law that took effect two years ago, posting a photo of a completed ballot is a violation punishable by a fine of up to $1,000. It was struck down a year ago, but the state appealed to the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston, which will take up the case on Tuesday.
Supporters of the ban argue that someone who wanted to coerce voters could insist on seeing pictures of their ballots to prove how they voted. Opponents argue the law squelches free speech.
The American Civil Liberties Union-New Hampshire brought the case on behalf of three people who were investigated after posting ballot photos.
