Take a Camera to the Polls

I love this idea: check out the New York Times Polling Place Photo Project.

The Polling Place Photo Project is a nationwide experiment in citizen journalism that encourages voters to capture, post and share photographs of this year’s primaries, caucuses and general election. By documenting local voting experiences, participants can contribute to an archive of photographs that captures the richness and complexity of voting in America.

Susan,

Thanks for this link. What a great idea! Both Alvina Ling and Grace Lin have posted pictures of their polling places in New York City and Somerville, Massachusetts, at Blue Rose Girls this morning.

I think I'll take my camera when I go to vote today.

Elaine, I'm taking my camera, too! There's an interesting article in the NY Times today

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/04/us/politics/04memo.html?hp

Adam Nagourney writes, "The 2008 race for the White House that comes to an end on Tuesday fundamentally upended the way presidential campaigns are fought in this country, a legacy that has almost been lost with all the attention being paid to the battle between Senators John McCain and Barack Obama."

I wish I had done this.

Very cool! I love that Sunnyvale photo.

Wisteria, I wish you had, too. Your pictures would have been very cool. I did it! (As of 8 pm, I'm the only one for Westport CT.) I had to put away my camera before entering the gym where my district's booths were. Hmm.

Jules, I gotta find the Sunnyvale one. I think this project is cool, too.
