Did Beyonce Break the Law by Revealing Her Ballot on Election Day?


All throughout Election Day, celebrities posted photos of themselves on various social networking sites going to the polls, and some even showed fans pictures of their filled-out ballots, including Beyonce.  But it turns out it’s actually illegal to do that in some states.
So, did Beyonce break the law?  Well, actually, no….While Beyonce lives in New York, where it is illegal to show off your completed ballot, what she was shown displaying on her Tumblr post was her absentee ballot from her home state of Texas.  In Texas, you’re not allowed to use a camera or any other recording device within 100 feet of a voting station, but disclosing your vote isn’t a no-no.  Since she was simply holding up her ballot, wasn’t at a polling place, and you couldn’t actually see who she voted for, she’s apparently off the hook.

In addition to her vote being obscured, the ballot that Beyonce displayed also had her address obscured.  While her address may remain a mystery, it’s probably not hard to guess which candidate got her vote.
