“Acting Sheriff Ben Logan hasn’t heard from Leigh Somerall in a very long time, but it doesn’t mean he can get her–or their whirlwind romance of ten years ago–out of his head.

How well do we really know the election process? For today’s challenge you will be identifying what you think is an election crime punishable by ballot invalidation and possibly fines or jail time.
Which of the following is an election crime in the United States:
1. In some states it is illegal to post who you voted for on Facebook.
2. In some states it is illegal to share a photo of your ballot on social media.
3. In some states it is illegal to vote without showing a valid photo I.D.
4. In some states it is illegal to text out who you voted for on Twitter.
