Voter Selfies During The New York City Election (PHOTOS)

New Yorkers will elect a new mayor and vote on six important ballot measures Tuesday. WNYC, as they did during the primaries in September, encouraged local voters to tweet their "voter selfies." Before long, #voterselfie was trending regionally on Twitter Tuesday morning. Check out some great photos below of New Yorkers celebrating their civic duty:

Reminder: make sure that you do not photograph your actual ballot while taking your selfie. Technically, you can take a photo of yourself while in the booth, since New York State has no explicit rules against it, but it may be a good idea to wait until you leave the polling location altogether and that way you can include your "I voted" sticker in the photo.
