The general election is rapidly approaching, and early voting in Minnesota has been underway for weeks. As an unprecedented number of Minnesotans cast absentee ballots before Election Day, the Star Tribune is participating in ProPublica's Electionland — a nationwide coalition of news organizations monitoring the election for voting problems.

Whether you're voting by mail, dropping off an absentee ballot in person or heading to the polls on Election Day, if you encounter any problems casting your ballot, we want to hear your story. This could include things like technical problems, long lines or wait times, voter intimidation or noncompliance with COVID-19 regulations.

To submit a tip, fill out the form below or follow the instructions to send a text or a message via Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger.
