Report (and tweet) any trouble at the polls

October 31, 2008

Turnout is expected to be high all over the country and this will likely mean long lines at polling places and scattered voting troubles. Chicago Public Radio wants to hear from you if you witness or encounter any issues at your polling place. You can contact us at news@chicagopublicradio.org or by calling 312 948 4650. We'll also be monitoring Twitter Vote Report for any signs of trouble. The site is already up, and will be humming on Tuesday with voters reporting in from across the country. Twitter users can simply add the #votereport to any tweet and it will end up on the Vote Report page. (While you're at it, add @wbez and we'll be sure to see your tweet. More soup'd up tweet options can be found here). Not a Twitter user, no problem! They have set up easy and convenient alternates to Twitter. Either way, issues at polling places are sure to big part of the story on Tuesday and your participation will help make us stay on top of the story. Thanks!
