6th Circuit Revives Woman’s Suit Challenging Ohio’s Ban on Taking, Sharing Photos of Marked Ballots

While voting in the 2020 general election, Alison Kareem took a photograph with her marked ballot, or a “ballot selfie,” which she said she wished to post online to mobilize support for her preferred candidates. However, she did not display the photograph or any other ballot photographs in subsequent elections, due to Ohio laws prohibiting the display of marked ballots, Ohio law Sections 3501.35(A)(4) and 3599.20, which the court noted carry potential terms of imprisonment.
