Election Day is Nov. 6 and Mississippi Today is partnering with Electionland, a national project of ProPublica, to cover issues at polling places – including problems  with ballots, registration and long lines.

Electionland is working with newsrooms around the country to report problems that “prevent eligible voters” from voting. If you have a problem or want to share a tip, Mississippi voters can contact Electionland using the methods below or contact the Mississippi Today newsroom directly.

Also, to see races around the state and a sample ballot go here.

You can also contact the Mississippi Today newsroom to report any problems at the polls.
