    many folks can't afford video cameras.  Maybe the local Democratic party could have on  hand some video cameras at each polling site, and allow people who want to use it to take it into the polling booth, and tape their actual voting and ballot.  Another suggestion would be cell phones with cameras.  Take a snapshot of your ballot with a pre-prepared sign/note that gives the date and time you voted as well as who you voted for.  Also, Local dem parties could provide a bunch of disposable cameras to voters to take a picture of their ballots along with the note of date and time.  As the cameras get full, new ones are handed out. Assign someone at that the polling site to keep up with the cameras and store them in a safe place.  Should a dispute arise, the photos could be processed.   It would cost some bucks to develop all that film, but it would be worth it.  Just brainstorming some ideas.

    ...and they passed in thought out to regions where pain and delight flow together and tears are the very wine of blessedness.

      Perhaps using cameras with the date/time stamp might work?  Not sure if they are as credible.  Keep the ideas flowing.  Contact and other activist for voting rights websites for ideas!  Good point.
