No charges against Wisconsin Rapids mayor for posting ballot online

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WI (WTAQ) - The mayor of Wisconsin Rapids will not be charged, after he posted his spring re-election primary ballot on Facebook.  

Zach Vruwink said earlier that he took a picture of his February ballot, and put it on his Facebook page -- but he immediately removed it after learning it was a felony.  

The district attorney in neighboring Clark County investigated the matter.  

Showing a marked ballot to somebody else calls for an 18 month prison sentence and a $10,000 fine.

The topic was publicized in the 2012 recall elections, when State Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate posted a picture of his ballot online.
