Appeals court rules N.H. ‘ballot selfie’ law unconstitutional

BOSTON (WHDH) - A New Hampshire was ruled unconstitutional by a Federal appeals court in Boston.

The law prohibits people from posting photos of their completed ballot.

The law was struck down a year ago, but the state appealed.

The law was put into effect to prevent voter coercion.

Despite that fact, the appeals court said that doesn’t justify putting a restriction on free speech.
