It's actually extremely sensible not to allow carte blanche photographing/recording of cast ballots.

On the other hand, going prepared to document a "glitch" is not a bad idea, since if such a "Glitch" were to occur, the Constitutional right to a fair, accurate and properly counted ballot would supercede any local, state or even federal law forbidding the recording of a ballot. Indeed it might be properly argued that it is the absolute constitutionally mandated duty of each and every citizen exercising their right to vote, to document ballots "spoiled" by "systemic error".

If it smells the slightest bit fishy, raise your hand. Call for official scritineers to witness the error. Call for volunteer witnesses, especially representatives of the press. Demand that the error be documented and make bloody sure that that documentation can not be "disappeared".

And finally if you have even the slightest doubt that your ballot was spoiled/altered (even if it is corrected with the assistance of poll workers) step back to the wall, and stand ready to bear witness to iregularities in the ballots of those who follow you.
