Eric Trump’s Ballot Pic Reported to Board of Elections

The New York Board of Elections has received an official complaint against Eric Trump, who apparently violated New York election law by posting a picture of his completed ballot on Twitter. The Democratic Coalition Against Trump filed the complaint Tuesday morning, after Trump tweeted and deleted a picture of his filled-out ballot. It is illegal to photograph a completed ballot in the state. Similar anti-“ballot selfie” laws have been overturned and challenged across the U.S., and an effort to change the law in New York proved unsuccessful last week when a judge ruled that it would cause too much confusion to do so with the election so near in time.
