With the US presidential race coming to a close, PBS is hoping to capture and preserve some of this year’s election fervor with its Video Your Vote initiative, a collaborative online/broadcast project presented in collaboration with Youtube. For Video Your Vote, PBS is asking voters around the country to bring their video cameras to the election booth to document the electoral process through their eyes. The videos will be posted on PBS’s Video Your Vote channel on Youtube, and the best of the bunch will also be showcased on PBS during the station’s coverage on Nov 4. PBS states that the project is meant to “chronicle the excitement and energy at the polls, as well as any problems that may arise — like long lines or broken voting machines — that could prevent citizens from exercising their right to vote.” Videographers that do encounter issues are even encouraged to tag their videos with “pollproblem” so they can be easily found.
