Video Your Vote!"
Video Your Vote is a joint project between the NewsHour and YouTube to document the experiences of new and old voters across the country and to collect voter opinions on the 2008 election. Cameras were sent out to almost 50 teachers in over 26 states and the District of Columbia.
You can see more of the videos on a special YouTube channel youtube.com/videoyourvote. You can browse by geographic area or subject. Come back and tell us which ones are most important to you!
