Is Taking A Selfie While Voting Legal?

We have heard that, “Ballot Selfies” aren’t legal in certain states so we did a little digging and found the following information which clearly states that “Ballot Selfies” are

“KENTUCKY: Secretary of state spokesman Bradford Queen says state law does not allow people to record the likeness of a voter, but the law does not say whether voters can record their own likeness. Therefore, the secretary of state’s office routinely tells county clerks the law does not prohibit ballot selfies.” – Per AP Article Ballot Selfies

We also found the following links that verify it is legal to take a selfie of yourself voting:
