Hi there:

I wondered if I could ask your helping in getting the word out about a
project.

We¹re launching a national experiment to photograph every polling place in
America. Our partners are Design for Democracy, Design Observer,
NewAssignment.Net, and NYU Department of Journalism (Jay Rosen). It is
critical that we get the word out about the project, so that others can
learn about it. Plus, the whole project is an experiment in citizen
journalism, using online communities to create broad participation in civic
issues.

If there is something you can do to help spread the word, thank you!
