About Polling Place Photo Project
The Polling Place Photo Project is a nationwide experiment in citizen journalism that encourages voters to capture, post and share photographs of this year’s primaries, caucuses and general election. By documenting local voting experiences, participants can contribute to an archive of photographs that captures the richness and complexity of voting in America.
Photographs of polling places, and the information that accompanies them, is a visual record of how voting occurs in America: where it occurs, what the procedure looks like, how people act, and, ultimately, the way the voting experience could be designed to be easier, less confusing and more rewarding. The Project expects to collect photographs of every polling place in America, so you are encouraged to participate no matter where you vote.
How to Participate

Photographs of polling places may be posted only from the United States as well as from international polling places that are specifically for the U.S. presidential election.
You need to follow the rules at the local polling place, and you should be respectful of other citizens who may not wish to be photographed.
