Fans run into Justin Timberlake outside polling place

So Justin Timberlake lives in California and recently bought a spread near Nashville, but it appears he's still registered to vote in Memphis.

The famous singer/actor/Punk'd victim posted an Instagram photo to his 37.1 million followers showing that he'd flown in from California just to vote. The selfie showed Timberlake casting his ballot at New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in Germantown (even though snapping a selfie at a polling place is technically illegal after a 2015 vote by the state legislature banning the practice).

"I just flew from LA to Memphis to #rockthevote!!!" Timberlake wrote.

Although Timberlake hasn't really lived in Memphis for years, he apparently wasn't committing an infraction by casting a ballot here, Shelby County Election Commission Chairman Robert Meyers said Monday night. The rules on where someone can maintain residency to vote are vague, Meyers said, and are largely based on where someone intends to permanently reside. Mostly, those rules are in place to prevent people from voting more than once in multiple locations, with the possible exception of municipal races in one and federal elections in another.
