ST. PAUL, Minn. - According to the Minnesota Secretary of State it is not illegal to take a photo inside of a polling place but voters are not allowed to take photos of a marked ballot.

The Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State encourages voters to be respectful of other voters' privacy and not include them in photos.

Also lines can get long on election day so the Secretary of State website states "Voters have a right to take the time they need to vote, but should not take extra time to take pictures."

So take your election day selfies but don't include your marked ballot.
