As the 2008 presidential election kicks into gear today, the proprietors of the Polling Place Photo Project, a citizen journalism experiment spearheaded by AIGA, Design Observer and NewAssignment.net would really, really like to get your shots. If you’re in Iowa and headed to the polls, take along your camera to document your experience, and upload it to the site. We did it last year and it was really fun (and we didn’t even get arrested!).
A brand new Polling Place Photo Project site will be going up next week just for the 2008 elections, so for those of you in other states with premature primaries, plan to snap away. And yes, caucusing is a word, we swear, so feel free to use it all day.
