Selfies in the voting booth are banned under Georgia law, but Gwinnett County wants to help you legally get that perfect Instagrammable shot when you do your civic duty.

The county has set up photo stations at all of its nine advance and satellite voting locations. The areas feature a step-and-repeat backdrop with Gwinnett County’s logo and multiple signs to hold up, photobooth-style. This is the first year the photo stations have been available.

Just like all other voting information in Gwinnett County, the signs in the photo station are available in English and Spanish. Phrases include #IVoted, #FutureVoter (for the little ones accompanying mom or dad) and #VotoPorPrimeraVez (I voted for the first time).

You can use the photo station to take your perfect selfie, or have someone else take the shot for you. Just make sure to keep your camera off when you’re casting your vote — it’s illegal to photograph the ballot and voting machines.
