Photograph Your Polling Place.

by Chris Coyier

The New York Times is sponsoring an interesting project documenting the voting process in America called “Photograph Your Polling Place”. From the website:

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.

It makes me think back to all the weird places I’ve voted, and then see that they really weren’t that weird at all. It’s very common to vote in gymnasiums, churches, and tiny little town halls with handwritten signs. You are able to browse through the already extensive photo collection as well as submit your own.

    A little surreal, since I’m viewing the site from U of M’s Ann Arbor campus.
