Greenpoint Election Guide: No Ballot Selfies!

Hillary vs Trump GIFTomorrow is election day, and no matter who you’re voting for, just get out there and get ‘er done! Make no excuses. From David Leonhardt in The New York Times: “Many people who intend to vote become waylaid — by a traffic jam, a sick kid or a work meeting. Make a detailed plan now, about when and where you will vote.

Also note, it’s illegal to take photographs in the polling place, and photos of completed ballots, so no ballot selfies! You would be breaking a NY State law, and subject to a $1000 fine.

Find out if you’re registered in NY State. (Hopefully you are!)

Here’s how to find your polling place, in case you’re not sure.
