Texas 2020 Elections

Have a problem voting in Texas? Let us know

The Texas Tribune is partnering with ProPublica's Electionland to track obstacles to voting in Texas. Here's how you can help.

Voters cast their ballots at the Great Baptist Hills Church in Austin in July.

Early voting in Texas begins Tuesday, kicking off in-person balloting in an election unlike any in the state's history.

To keep an eye on how things are going, The Texas Tribune is teaming up with ProPublica's Electionland. And we need your help. If you're out at the polls — or submitting a mail-in ballot — and you notice something wrong, let us know. Problems can be anything: long lines, voter intimidation, technological problems, flouting of recommended COVID-19 protocols, voter ID issues or more.

ProPublica has built a network of news outlets, including The Texas Tribune, across the state and country. Electionland will review your tip and share it with the news outlet best positioned to review it. Or if you want to make sure the tip gets to the Tribune, you can reach out to us directly at
