In a photo that posted to his Instagram account on Monday, the 35 year-old musician is seen standing in front of a ballot machine at his designated voting spot, making an ugly selfie face and writing the caption that reads:

‘Hey! You! Yeah, YOU! I just flew from LA to Memphis to #rockthevote !!! No excuses, my good people! There could be early voting in your town too. If not, November 8th! Choose to have a voice! If you don’t, then we can’t HEAR YOU! Get out and VOTE! #excerciseyourrighttovote.’

How about instead of just randomly calling out people to ‘rockthevote’, we actually get people informed on what they are voting for? Okay? Great, thanks.

Apparently, in taking a photo in a voting booth in Tennessee, Justin has just committed a crime, with a penalty of up to 30 days in prison and a $50 fine. At first, a representative from the Shelby County has said that the incident is ‘under review’.

Vince Higgins, Shelby County District Attorney General’s own communications director, is on record saying:

‘While we are aware of an allegation that someone may have violated a Tennessee state election law, we have not been presented anything by an investigative authority.’

The D.A. General of Shelby County, Amy Weirich, also said:

‘The statement released earlier today by my office regarding Justin Timberlake and an investigation was incorrect and was released without my knowledge. I am out of town at a conference. No one in our office is currently investigating this matter nor will we be using our limited resources to do so.’

Last year, Tennessee passed a law banning ballot selfies and so far, no one has been prosecuted for violating it. Could Justin Timberlake be the first?

Fat chance.

The office’s spokesman Adam Ghassemi said:

‘We’re thrilled Justin can’t stop the feeling when it comes to voting so much that he voted early in person and is promoting voting to his millions of fans. In Tennessee, using electronic devices inside polling locations to take pictures, videos or make calls is not allowed. We hope this encourages more people than ever to vote, but Tennesseans should only use their phones inside polling locations for informational purposes to assist while voting, like our free GoVoteTN mobile app. If polling officials discover someone violating this law they will ask the voter to put their phone away.’

What use is the law in this case? Pick and choose…
