Voters Keeping An Eye On Their Own Votes

The candidates aren't the only ones who'll be put to the test on Election Day. Countless voters will likely face challenges too, confronting new voting machines and procedures.

As CBS News correspondent Randall Pinkston reports, voters can look forward to help from a group that's planning to "Video the Vote."

The man behind the project is a professional film maker. His students are amateur photographers. They are all hoping to paint a clear picture of what happens on Tuesday.

Ian Inaba, the film maker, said, "Video the Vote is going to be the eyes and ears of America on Election Day."

Inaba got the idea for Video the Vote after completing his award-winning documentary 'American Blackout.' The film retraced some of the anger and frustration at the ballot box during the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections.

"I've taken this film across the country for nine months and people are outraged," Inaba said. "And they want to get involved, and they want to solve these problems."

This time around both major political parties are gearing up for Election Day legal challenges. They're already lining up lawyers – and money – to fight it out on – and after – Election Day.

New requirements for voter identification that could prevent thousands from casting ballots are raising concerns in some states. And, there are also worries about the new electronic voting machines.

Attorney Lowell Finley has filed several lawsuits already to block the use of electronic voting machines. He said there were problems with the new machines during the primary elections and is concerned it will be worse in the general election.

"My worst fear is that, with the vastly larger turnout in the general election than we had in the primaries, we will see meltdowns in many states," Finley said.

That's where Video the Vote comes in.

If they see problems this Tuesday, voters can call a nationwide hotline to flag problems worth putting on tape. (888-SAV-VOTE)

They can even upload clips on Video the Vote's link on YouTube.

"We want to make sure the voter, you know, which voters are winning and losing on Election Day," Inaba said. "And whether that story gets told."
