Voting selfie? Take it outside the polling station, Elections Canada warns
It's election day, and while you may be tempted to share your part in the democratic process on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, Elections Canada is cautioning Canadians to wait until they're outside the polling station to snap that selfie.
According to Elections Canada, voters may use electronic devices, including cellphones, inside the polling station to show proof of identity, such as an e-invoice or e-statement.
As well, voters with disabilities can use an electronic device to help them read ballots.
However, voters may not use an electronic device in a way that is disruptive, to take photos, record an audio or video recording, or in a way that jeopardizes the privacy of other voters or the secrecy of the vote.
"They don't want you to jeopardize the privacy or security of anyone else while they're voting," technology analyst Carmi Levy told CTV's Canada AM on Monday.
