Problems with voting in Ohio? Let us know

CLEVELAND, Ohio – If you have or see any problems as you vote, we want to hear about it.

Cleveland.com is part of Electionland, a project among newsrooms across the country and investigative news nonprofit ProPublica tracking problems on Election Day and during early voting, which began today in Ohio.

Journalists across the country will monitor the polls through Electionland. ProPublica reporters will watch sources such as social media and Google search data for reports of long lines, voting machine problems, confusion and voter fraud allegations.

Cleveland.com will use those tips to report on Ohio problems.

We want you to share your voting experience, whether you’re casting an absentee ballot by mail, voting early in person or visiting the polls on Election Day.

Voters can report tips by phone text messaging (known as SMS), WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
