Justin Timberlake hopped a flight from Los Angeles to Memphis last month to vote early, capping the moment by snapping a selfie in front of his voting machine.
The picture — posted on Twitter and Instagram before it was quickly removed — was supposedly under investigation for violating a Tennessee law banning "ballot selfies." Reports suggested the pop star faced a fine or even jail time.
But local prosecutors said they had no intention of going after Timberlake in a case that highlights how laws about photos in polling places can be murky, outdated or incomplete — adding to the confusion about whether a person even has such a constitutional right.
As voters cast their ballots in this age of social media, they'll find that documenting the experience might not be as simple as saying cheese.
