#GoVote: Canadians Flood Instagram With Selfies, Photos At Advance Polls

Some Canadian voters are hoping their advance poll photos will give others mad voting FOMO.

Voters aren’t allowed to take photos inside polling locations or of their ballots, but many took to Instagram to encourage others to get out and vote this weekend.
