Alternate Camera Ideas for Verified Voting
BBV has their idea, which has generated discussion already. I want to put forward some alternatives for discussion.

In 2006, I plan on taking a digital camera and disposable camera with me into the voting booth. Once I've made all my selections, I am going to photograph them so that I will have a "receipt".

Couldn't we start a campaign to provide disposable cameras to people that need them - I'm thinking lower income populations - and have everyone photograph their vote? Then we let it be known, far and wide, that this is happening and perhaps get some media coverage in addition to actually having a record of the vote.

Another idea I heard someone suggest on AAR was that people wear a color to signify their party choice. Then, if we have photographs of polling places, we have a permanent record of an "exit poll" so to speak.
