Voter issues tip line is live

It’s an election year like no other, and ProPublica has a crowdsourcing operation to track voter problems. The Nevada Independent is supporting the effort to gather tips from voters so we can report on voting experiences — good, bad or ugly — leading up to and on Election Day.

You can sign up and share your voting experience in any of these ways:

— Text the word VOTE for English, 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

Fill out this form.

Here are some of the things that should be reported:

— Harassment or intimidation at the polls

— Exceptionally long poll lines

— Technical problems with voting machines

— Polling locations suddenly changing

— Voter ID issues

— Ballot design problems

All tips in Nevada will be shared with all participating Nevada news teams. A journalist from The Nevada Independent, Pro Publica or other newsroom may contact you with questions.
