英选民被警告不要在投票点自拍

Voters warned not to take SELFIES at the polling station because it breaches election rules

Rule breakers will be told to delete any images immediately for fears the snaps could reveal how others voted

Voters have been warned not to take selfies inside polling booths when casting their vote.

The Electoral Commission said the craze for taking self-portraits with mobile phones may lead to breaches of strict election rules.

‘No photography’ signs will be installed at polling stations around the country.

Officials said any photographs taken inside polling stations will have to be deleted immediately.

“We have told staff that if they see anyone taking a photograph they should ask the person to delete it - but not try to wrestle the phone out of their hands,” said an electoral services manager in the East of England.

The Electoral Commission fears people taking selfies could accidentally reveal details about how they, or someone else, has voted, potentially putting them in breach of the law.

Electoral rules state that anyone who inadvertently reveals how someone else votes in tomorrow’s local and European elections could face a £5,000 fine or six months in prison.

But John Turner, chief executive of the Association of Electoral Administrators, said the law is outdated and unclear.

“There is not an Act of Parliament that says you should not take a selfie inside a polling station,” he said.

“This is essentially a piece of Victorian legislation - and they didn’t have mobile phones back then.”

The Law Commission said it was reviewing all legislation on the way elections are conducted, including rules about secrecy.

据英国《镜报》5月21日报道,正值欧洲议会大选之际,英国的投票者被警告不要在投票点进行自拍。据选举委员会称,风靡当下的手机自拍可能会破坏严格的选举规定,一不小心就会泄露自己或别人的选举信息。

因此英国决定在投票点设立“禁止拍照”的标志。有官员还声称那些在选票点拍照的人们会被要求立即删除照片。

有位来自英国东部从事选举服务的经理说:“我们告诉员工在不抢夺别人手机的情况下告知任何在投票点拍照的人删除他们的照片。”

有选举条例规定,在5月22日展开的欧洲议会大选和当地选举中,任何不经意间泄露投票者投票信息的人都会受到惩罚,惩罚从5000英镑(约人民币52000元)罚款到6个月监禁不等。

然而也有人对这项规定提出了异议。选举行政人员协会的首席执行官约翰•特纳认为该规定含糊不清并已经过时。

“这是个维多利亚时代的立法,那时候人们还没有手机。”

英国法律委员会声称他们将要在选举过程中审核包括保密规定在内的所有立法。

此次欧洲议会选举是第八届选举,它将从5月22日开始到5月25日在欧盟成员国内进行。
