Citizens Journalism Exhibition
The Winterhouse Polling Place Photo Project Citizen Journalism Exhibition is coming to the University of Hartford. The opening reception is on Friday, March 6th, 2009 and the show runs through March 18th.

Citizens at the Polls, Cameras in Hand ยท The Polling Place Photo Project was a nationwide experiment in citizen journalism that encouraged voters to capture, post and share photographs of primaries, caucuses and general elections. By documenting local voting experiences, participants contributed to an archive of photographs that capture the richness and complexity of voting in America.

Initiated by Winterhouse in partnership with AIGA, the project first sought to engage voters during the highly politicized 2006 midterm elections. In 2008, the project was supported by The New York Times and promoted as a part of their online election coverage. The archive now includes almost 6,000 photographs, representing all 50 states as well as Americans voting abroad.
