Voter Fraud - some great material for politics classes

Videothevote From Douglas Rushkoff I picked up on Video the Vote, a moblogging project which encourages people to video voting fraud as they discover it, in the booth, in the voting hall, on the ballot. There is a superb 'demo' video which in itself tells how things can go wrong in a first-person, reality TV way, and is exactly the kind of real-life resource we could use in Politics or Citizenship classes to illustrate something which, for under 18-year-olds, is already a bit too far off their horizons to comprehend. Have your camera-phone ready for 2007.
