Activism: Video Your Vote

Interesting action proposed at the entertainment news site Jossip:

[C]itizen journalism as watchdogs are exactly what PBS and YouTube hope to achieve with their ‘Video Your Vote’ campaign, which encourages voters to “solicit, organize, stream and broadcast user-generated video from polling places around the nation on election day.”

So if you see something, say something. And then post it on your blog, Twitter it, and give everyone a big old Facebook status update of any nefarious dealings at your local polling place.

Awesome idea! If you have access to a portable video camera or a cell phone with video-recording capabilities, record your vote, and if you see funny stuff at the polls, record that. Share what you find with the world. If there are questions at the end, perhaps your video can save the day — and a lot of people will thank you.
