People voting in tomorrow's elections are being warned not to take selfies in the voting booths.
Gravesham council has been issued with posters from the Electoral Commission asking people not to take them and post them on social media sites.
A spokesman for the council said: "All polling stations have been issued with posters reminding voters that mobile phones and photographic equipment must not be used in a polling station."
The European elections take place tomorrow across the boroughs of Gravesham and Dartford.
Under Section 66 of the Representation of the People's Act it is an offence to communicate information about the way someone has voted or to communicate the identification number on the ballot paper.
Voters could face a £5,000 fine or six months in prison.
At stake are 73 seats across the UK – 10 of which are in the South East encompassing Kent and Medway.
In the UK, there are 12 European parliamentary electoral regions.
England is divided into nine electoral regions for the poll: East Midlands, Eastern, London, North East, North West, South East, South West, West Midlands, and Yorkshire and the Humber.
The UK is represented by a total of 73 MEPs.
Polling booths are open from 7am to 10pm and election results will not be declared until Sunday, May 25.
In Gravesham’s Coldharbour ward, a by-election will be held today as well after councillor Rosemary Leadley stood down.
The polls will remain open alongside the EU elections and the count will take place on Friday, May 23, and the result announced.
