In Wisconsin, it’s considered felony election fraud to, “intentionally show your marked ballot to any person.”

The state Government Accountability Board put out a memo about the law during the Walker recall elections this summer. Board director Kevin Kennedy said in the memo, “Don’t tweet your ballot.”

Google has encouraged voters to document their voting process on YouTube.
