Tweet either one and you’ll end up in hot water.

It’s a felony to tweet photos of your ballot in Wisconsin. So don’t be like these party officials. http://t.co/DkiYUwXE

Fox News reports:

The law bars voters from showing their completed ballots to anyone. The intent is to prevent people from selling their votes and then showing their ballots as proof they voted as requested, Wisconsin Government Accountability Board spokesman Reid Magney said.

But some voters – including Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate and St. Croix County Republican Party Chairman Jesse Garza – were unaware that the posts violated state law. Tate and Garza said they were immediately taking down photos of their absentee ballots.
