Lawsuit aims to allow ballot selfies in Colorado

State senator and first-time voter argue free speech is on the line
A federal lawsuit was filed Monday to block a law that in the 1890s prohibited voters from showing their completed ballot to others and was punishable by a fine of $5 to $100. The law now is being applied to photos of completed ballots, and carries a penalty of up to a year in jail and $1,000.
