Tips Ahoy: SJI, ProPublica Partner for 2020 Election

San Jose Inside is partnering with ProPublica for its Electionland project—a nationwide collaboration to investigate voting issues during the 2020 election.

Each year, the New York City-based nonprofit news outlet teams up with local and national newsrooms across the U.S. to report on problems related to mail ballot delivery, long voting lines, registration problems, purged voter rolls, voter intimidation, broken polling machines and much more.

But to do that, Electionland needs to hear from voters, poll workers, volunteers and everyone in between. Concerned voters can report issues in the following ways:

  • SMS: Text 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 850.909.8683.

  • Facebook Messenger: Go to

  • Complete the form below to share your election experience.

San Jose Inside will receive alerts from ProPublica that will help journalists in the newsroom to investigate Santa Clara County voting issues.
