  1. I'm not sure which category something like this would best fit, but it occurred to me that election lines would be prime targets for crazy people to do a lot of damage in a hurry. I suggested to local law enforcement that drones could be a useful tool for monitoring voting sites. There would be a boatload of FAA waivers that would be needed in order to cover an election site and election times from early morning to evening hours. VLOS, altitude, flying at dawn and dusk and evening flights, flying over people, potential conflict with helicopters overhead. Just about all of the regulations would need to be waived. Probably way too complicated. The answer I got back was that local officials have not considered this idea so far. But, if it would save lives, wouldn't it be worth it? Another thought would be to raise the ladders on firefighting ladder equipment to maximum height of about 104 ft. I've been up on one of those during a citizen's fire academy training night. Very dramatic what can be seen from that height. Especially at night. A drone would be a better idea, in my opinion. Just a thought. Stan Nickel
