Did Beyoncé Break the Law??


2012 Presidential Election is here and of course everyone including celebrities is super excited! Americans are expressing their excitements by sharing their political affiliations with Twitter, Instagram and Facebook so the world can see.

Earlier today, Beyoncé shared a photo of her Texas absentee ballot in NYC. We are sure the R&B star meant nothing wrong by sharing the pic, however the question remains, will  Beyoncé be arrested for showing her ballot?

According to Citizen Media Law Projects it states that:

“Any person who…makes or keeps any memorandum of anything occurring within the booth, or directly or indirectly, reveals to another the name of any candidate voted for by such voter; or shows his ballot after it is prepared for voting, to any person so as to reveal the contents…is guilty of a misdemeanor.”

New York: Voters are prohibited from showing their ballots after prepared for voting to any person so as to reveal the contents.

Check out the pic below:


A picture is worth a thousand words and we are positive that Bey was doing this to make a statement. Lets hope it’s not that serious!
