We will closely monitor  any problems that prevent people from voting — such as mail ballot delivery problems, changed voting locations, long lines, registration problems, purged voter rolls, broken machines and voter intimidation.

VPR will receive real-time notifications whenever a voter reports a problem, allowing us to quickly disperse reporters to cover issues.

And we need your help. Here’s how to sign up and get in touch, so you can let us know how your voting experience goes.
