#BCVotes: British Columbians head to the polls — and pose for the camera

It's finally here! It's municipal election day across the province and eligible voters are casting ballots — and sharing the voting selfie.

Many municipalities across the province are encouraging voters to take selfies to celebrate their civic pride — but make sure it's outside the polling station because some municipalities say taking a photo inside is a violation of privacy.

And be wary of photographing your ballot. In the City of Vancouver, for example, section 125(3) (b) of the Vancouver Charter states that no one may reproduce a ballot (this means via photograph as well).
