USE YOUR CELL TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR VOTE
If you vote on a computer with no paper trail be prepared to take a snap shot if your vote gets switched.

I don't know if it's legal or illegal, but if enough people do it and if there is proof it might mean something.

I vote on paper and then my vote is counted on a tabulator behind closed doors, so I can't do it and god only knows if my vote is counted correctly. But there are enough reports of people seeing their votes being switched that if you can capture it would be great.

1. Document everything, especially if something is suspicious...
...while you're there, even if your vote appears to count.

2. What if someone had a website where people could post pictures of their votes
being switched??

4. I believe there exists such a website, and it's been posted here...
...but I can't think of it off hand. Check recent posts.

3. Keep the original in the phone
Since digital is far easier to natively manipulate, its veracity can be called into question. Only an unaltered original in the original source would be permissable, and even then a cell phone can be hacked too.

Dunno about the legality, but for technical reasons it's not feasable.

5. I read this somewhere.......


When you vote, pick an innocuous political race that means nothing to you. Put your
own name in as the 'write-in' candidate and vote for yourself. Check the voting returns to make
sure you got 1 vote. If not then they ditched your ballot.
