This is the picture I took for the Polling Place Photo Project.
When I got to my polling place, I took a quick picture before heading in, since I wasn't sure how much time I would have.
Once inside, I didn't know the laws for taking photographs around polling areas, so I kept my camera in my bag.
I opted for a paper ballot and would have snuck some pictures, but I felt too exposed. Do you remember how you used to set up folders around your desk so nobody could cheat off your math test? That's pretty much what I had to keep everyone from viewing my votes.
I tried to snap some sneaky pictures as I left. I just did some pointing-and-shooting as I hurried away.
It wasn't until I got home that I realized I had forgotten to remove the lenscap.
