Well, here's one. Yesterday was an election day in many places. I
happened to be a Poll Watcher waiting for the polls to close and to pick
up a copy of the results from that precinct. Shortly before the closing
time (this Poll is in a grade school) a Webelos Den arrived to observe
and the election judges showed how the voting process works and each
scout got to 'vote' using the sample ballot demo machine. They had
previously found where they all lived on a precinct map and which
precinct they were in.
This has a disadvantage that it only occurs at certain, clearly
established times, but it seems pretty relevant if you happen to be
working on this near an election time.
