Let a Thousand Cameras Roll - Keep the Election Honest With Video.


Political operatives can only tamper with the election process if nobody is watching. Don't give them the chance! This Tuesday, take your video camera to your local polling place. Talk to the poll workers, find out where you can videotape and where you can't and then make sure you record as much as you can. Encourage people to come to you with any irregularities they believe are happening. Don't be intimidated, the election belongs to the people, that's you and me, and we have the right to record what's going on.

Be sure you have your batteries charged up and plenty of tape. Get your friends to take turns and help you. It could make a big difference later on, if the election needs to be investigated.

Remember, eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.
