Hey Paul, congrats !
To build on this - I feel in order to decide what should a waiting area ( lounge accomodate ) one really needs to know the tentative time a voter is likely to wait.
So let us assume –the wait time would vary from 10 minutes (tolarable) to 30 minutes (in-tolarable) and we need to cater to both the situations.
While going through your concept i recalled one of the inspiration from our challenge (http://www.openideo.com/open/voting/inspiration/doing-something-useful-whilst-waiting-inline-apple-stores/ ) which looks at how apple stores have dealt with the wait.
Another one about adding coffee- http://www.openideo.com/open/voting/inspiration/just-add-coffee/

In addition we could look at waiting lounge at airports - a comfortable seating is good enough for people to relax and get talking !

There has been a repetitive mention of display screens, i was wondering if we would like people to go through
a video showing safety tips ( ref inspiration by me - http://www.openideo.com/open/voting/inspiration/voting-hostess-facilitate-physical-demonstration-of-the-process-just-like-air-hostess-/ and florin on demonstrations before a flight takes off http://www.openideo.com/open/voting/inspiration/vote-safety-demonstration-/

I was wondering if we could have similar video displays (before voting. )

If a display screen is very expensive how about a pop–up book like brochure ( can’t help thinking about one of my inspirations-tell a story with pop -up books and musical cards - http://www.openideo.com/open/voting/inspiration/tell-a-story-with-pop-up-books-and-musical-cards-.-/ )
brochure(cheapest and easiest to produce ) which talks about the safety tips or the procedure like in travel guide but inclusive , graphical and multisensory !
I feel if we could ensure a place to sit/ hangout –a lot more can be done while waiting without making a voter realize that its THEIR TURN NEXT !

Cheers .
