Can I take a selfie? 
“Under Missouri law, voters cannot show their ballots to anyone with the intent of letting others know how they voted or how they’re about to vote,” Stephanie Fleming, Secretary of State spokesperson, said in a statement. “To be safe, voters should check with their local election authority before snapping a picture of their ballot to make sure they’re not violating Missouri election law." To show your support of the democratic process, voters are encouraged to take pictures with their "I voted today" stickers.
