Justin Tim­ber­lake casts his bal­lot in Mem­phis

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Justin Tim­ber­lake flew from Cal­i­for­nia to Ten­nessee in or­der to vote early, and state of­fi­cials say that’s great — but he shouldn’t have taken a selfie at the bal­lot box.

The singer posted a pic­ture of him­self at the vot­ing booth on In­sta­gram Mon­day, not­ing that if he could make that ef­fort, then there are “No ex­cuses, my good peo­ple!”

A Ten­nessee law that took ef­fect ear­lier this year bars vot­ers from tak­ing pho­tographs or video while in­side a polling lo­ca­tion.

Ten­nessee Sec­re­tary of State spokesman Adam Ghas­semi says of­fi­cials are “thrilled Justin can’t stop the feel­ing” but re­minded vot­ers to use their phones in­side polling lo­ca­tions only to help them vote.

Tim­ber­lake lives in Cal­i­for­nia, but grew up in the Mem­phis area and owns prop­erty near Nashville.
