Here's How To Take The Perfect Selfie With Your "I Voted" Sticker

Democracy is great, but selfies are better.

🚨 IF YOU'RE NOT REGISTERED TO VOTE YET, CLICK HERE! 🚨

Tuesday, November 6 is a VERY, very important day for Americans nationwide. I've had it marked on my calendar for months. Why?

E!

BECAUSE IT'S FINALLY THE DAY WHERE YOU CAN TAKE A SELFIE WITH YOUR "I VOTED" STICKER AND UPLOAD IT TO SOCIAL MEDIA.

Technically that also means it is Election Day, which is great and all. You should definitely vote, not just because it's part of your responsibility and right as an American citizen...but also because it's the only way you're going to get one of those coveted "I Voted" stickers.

E!

Here are the steps to getting the perfect "I Voted" selfie.

E!

1. First of all, check that you're actually registered to vote.

2. On Election Day, go out and cast your ballot.

This part should be obvious.

3. If you're voting by mail, you can totally still take part in the fun.

The more the merrier.

4. No cheating! You can't borrow your friend's sticker, or pick one up off the ground that you find.

E!

That's just bad karma, TBH.

5. It might not be a good idea to take a selfie with your ballot.

6. Finally, I'm a fan of either the downward facing selfie with the sticker on your chest...

Very flattering.

7. ...or having someone take a picture of you...

Teamwork makes the dream work.

8. ...OR holding up your sticker with your finger. It just WORKS.

An alternative option that we love.

9. And what the hell, you can even make up your own way. The only WRONG way to do it is not post an "I Voted" selfie at all.

Because if it didn't happen on Instagram did it happen at all?

10. Finally, encourage everyone who follows you to go out and vote too! Peer pressure is an amazing thing!

Do it do it do it.

And have a great "I Voted" Selfie Day/Election Day, y'all!
