CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Legislature is revisiting the issue of voters taking pictures of their ballots and posting them on social media.

Lawmakers last year updated a law that prohibits voters from allowing their ballots to be seen by anyone else to clarify that the ban included taking a digital photograph of a marked ballot and sharing it via social media or other means.

That law is being challenged by the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union and several voters.

The House Election Law Committee on Tuesday is hearing a bill that would remove the specific language about digital images and social media and would reduce the potential fine for violating the law from $1,000 to $10.
