WISCONSIN — Election Day could feel a little different in 2020.

A surge in absentee ballots in Wisconsin means we won’t have results as early as we normally do. Election security is of the utmost importance at TMJ4 News.

We know you care about your ballot and that is why we partnered with non-profit newsroom, ProPublica, as part of its Electionland project. The goal of this project is to uncover problems that prevent voters from casting their ballots. TMJ4 News joins newsrooms around the country in investigating election-related stories, including cybersecurity, misinformation, voter registration issues, long lines at the poll, and more.

To report on these stories, we need your help.

An Electionland tip line allows voters to report issues before, during and after the election. We will work to verify, investigate, and report those claims.
