The York Dispatch has partnered with the nonprofit news organization ProPublica to give local voters up-to-date information about voting issues during the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

The Electionland program is a collaborative effort allowing voters to submit local election-related problems on Election Day.

Issues that can be reported include but are not limited to: long lines; harassment at the polls; changed voting locations; provisional ballot use; voter ID issues; ballot design problems; and vote disruption caused by hacking.

Once issues are reported, The York Dispatch will receive real-time notifications of the submissions, leading to timely, efficient reporting about York County voters' experiences at the polls.

Voters can report issues via Facebook, Twitter or text message. The graphic below shows all of the information local voters need to submit problems they may experience.
