Important: Things you CAN NOT do on Election Day in polling places

Take a ballot selfie, land in jail

Colorado law prohibits voters from showing their completed ballot to others -- and this includes the so-called "ballot selfie" on Election Day.

The law found at 1-13-712 in the Colorado Revised Statutes states the following:

"No voter shall show his ballot after it is prepared for voting to any person in such a way as to reveal its contents."

Doing so is a misdemeanor and you could be punished with a fine of up to $1,000 or spend a year in Colorado county jail... or both.

Also; don't forget your ID and please note in the article what you can't wear.
