Video the vote.

Videothevote.org asks you to "[Stop] voter suppression, by observing the vote and sharing the results on Election Day." Snip from manifesto:
Xeni at BoingBoing.net
In 2000 and 2004, problems plagued the polls in different parts of the country: long lines, eligible voters turned away, voter intimidation, misallocation and malfunctioning of voting equipment. They were underreported on Election Day. Days and weeks later, a more complete picture of voter disenfranchisement emerged -- but it was too late. The elections were over and the media had moved on. Starting this election, citizen journalists -- people like you and I -- will document problems as they occur. We'll play them online, spread word through blogs and partner websites, doing our part to make sure the full story of our elections is told.

Legal guide for bloggers covering US Election Day

I am working with my client Joell palmer to try to get video he shot of being denied the right to vote because he won't show his voter license unless they show a warrant.
