Star-Telegram teams with ProPublica to monitor voting problems on Election Day

Leer en español.

With the midterm elections on Tuesday, Nov. 6, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram has joined ProPublica’s Electionland project to monitor voting problems across the country.

We want to know about any problems that prevent people from voting — such as long lines, registration problems, purged voter rolls, broken machines, ballot issues, voter intimidation and changed voting locations. The information you provide will help reporters investigate voting problems on Nov. 6 and help us understand the scope of these problems across Texas.

To let us know how your voting experience went or to tell us if you encountered anything that stopped you or others from casting a ballot, you can get in touch through the following channels:

SMS

Send the word VOTE, VOTA (for Spanish) or 投票 (for Chinese) to 81380 (standard text message rates apply).

WhatsApp

Send the word VOTE, VOTA (for Spanish) or 投票 (for Chinese) to 1-850-909-8683.

Facebook Messenger

Go to m.me/electionland to send a message.
