A legislator in New Hampshire suing the state said that a new law that bans voters from showing off their ballots is actually in violation of free speech in the First Amendment.
The suit is aimed at a new law that was recently passed by the state. The law prevents voters from snapping pics of their ballots and posting them on social media networking sites.
Individuals who are in violation of the law will face a maximum fine of $1,000.
The primary aim of the law is to curb vote buying. It also extends its ban in social media sites.
The New Hampshire ACLU who are representing the plaintiffs said the interest of the state in completely banning corruption will never trump the First Amendment rights of its citizens.
Leon, Rideout, Andrew Langlois, and political aspirant Brandon Ross, all took pictures of their ballots in the previous month and posting them on social media sites.
All three are currently under investigation.
