Justin Timberlake broke the law this week and no one cares

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WDEF) – How can a celebrity voting early get in trouble with the law?

This week, Justin Timberlake returned to Memphis to cast his ballot in the upcoming Presidential vote.

And he documented the moment to encourage fans to get out the vote (No, he didn’t endorse a specific candidate).

He posted “I just flew from L.A. 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, WE CAN’T HEAR YOU! Get out and VOTE!”

Trouble is, it is illegal to take a pictures inside a polling station with electronic devices.

There was some talk earlier this week about an investigation in Shelby County, but it looks like that has been squashed.

A spokesperson for the DA now says he was mistaken when said the selfie was under review.

The Tennessee Secretary of State’s Office was thrilled that the photo could encourage Timberlake’s fans to vote.

But they remind the rest of us that you can’t take photos or even make phone calls on your device inside polling locations.

As for Timberlake, you won’t find the photo at his Instagram site anymore, but you can find reposts.

And you can also find plenty of other photos of him posing with poll workers outside the polls.
