Thinking about taking a selfie as you vote on election day? Think again.

According to Elections Canada, you vote is to remain secret. They say that if people were allowed to show how they voted, it could lead to coercion or vote buying.

Taking any kind of photos, video or audio recordings inside a polling station is not allowed.
