Justin Timberlake Learned the Hard Way Why You Don't Take a Selfie in a Voting Booth

What not to do November 8.


A historic 200 million Americans are registered to vote this year, but probably not all of them know that it is against the law to take photos while you're in the booth, even if you're Justin Timberlake and have just presumably done your part to uphold one of the basic principles of democracy.

"Get out and vote," he said during an appearance on Jimmy Fallon. "Don't take a picture of yourself. I had no idea. I was like 'This is going to be great and inspire people to vote.'"


Although the above Instagram has since been deleted and the Shelby County, Tennessee District Attorney's office has said it isn't investigating Timberlake, it *is* illegal to take a photograph in a voting booth in 18 states in the U.S., including Tennessee. #themoreyouknow
