The Polling Place Photo Project

The Polling Place Photo Project is a nationwide experiment in citizen journalism that seeks to empower citizens to capture, post and share photographs of democracy in action. By documenting their local voting experience on November 7, voters can contribute to an archive of photographs that captures the richness and complexity of voting in America.

The Polling Place Photo Project is part of Design for Democracy, an initiative of AIGA, the professional association for design.

  1. “Richness and complexity of voting in America”?

    What’s so rich about people waiting in line and walking in and out of booths? The really interesting part happens behind a curtain, doesn’t it?

    Hmm…what else could they possibly mean by “richness and complexity?”

    Look for photos of illegal aliens being turned away from the polls. With captions implying they are legitimate voters.
