Help Us Tell West Virginia's 'ElectionLand' Story at the Polls

Oct 31, 2016


Love democracy as much as we do?

If so, you can help us tell West Virginia’s election story by telling us about your voting experience on November 8 (or before, if you are voting early).

We’ve teamed up with ProPublica’s ElectionLand, a digital news project that is tracking the election process across the state and the country. We'll be monitoring voter access in real time, confirming reports of voting irregularities and getting a better idea of what's happening as ballots are being cast across West Virginia.

To participate, simply text ‘WV VOTES’ to 69866.

We’ll ask you a few simple questions, like where you’re voting and how long you waited in line at the polls. If something stands out, one of our reporters may be in touch with you to find out more.

You can also tell us about your voting experience by filling out this form when you go to vote.

For more coverage of Election 2016, check out our podcast Viewpoint with Ashton Marra. On November 8, be sure to stay tuned to West Virginia Public Broadcasting and wvpublic.org for real time results, interactive maps and more. You can also follow @wvpublicnews on Twitter and like our Facebook Page.
