An attempt to make the process inclusive, National Anthem is something that  we all are proud of. The same was never considered from the point of view of a differently-abled citizens until MUDRA group produced this one for BIG CINEMAS.

Circulate local newspapers –within neighborhoods ,with very positive and affirmative news with focus on very local updates .Strong visuals, so that people can recognize and connect with people and know what is the latest in their neighborhood.

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 .
