Voting #selfies not allowed

The celeb selfie that shut down Twitter. (AP)
Cape Town - If you thought about taking a selfie whilst marking your choice on a ballot paper in a voting booth, think again.

The IEC retweeted a tweet telling first time voters to take note that "no cameras/selfies (are) allowed @IECSouthAfrica voting stations", and that it should rather be done outside the voting station while waiting your turn to vote.

This is in line with section 38 (1A) of the Electoral Act 73 of 1998 stating that:
"No person may make a photographic or any other form of image of a ballot which has been marked by a voter on election day or on a day on which special votes are casted."

Anyone caught breaking this rule and found guilty will have to pay a fine or face a period of imprisonment not exceeding one year.

PS: Remember to send us your #ElectionSelfie on 7 May by uploading it here.
