Have you experienced any trouble voting in person in Tampa Bay? Tell us what happened.

If you’ve encountered any issues while conducting in-person voting, we want to know about it.

This year’s general election has been unprecedented in many ways. Half of registered Floridians have already cast their ballots, with less than a week before Election Day. More vote-by-mail ballots have been cast so far than during the entire 2016 presidential election.

But there also have been problems with voting. We’ve seen videos of historically long lines and a few instances of possible voter suppression and intimidation. We’d like to know if you’ve experienced any problems yourself.

Did you wait in a long line? Were people holding up others by arguing about social distancing and wearing masks? Did a polling location close unexpectedly or did your voting machine have difficulties? Let us know.

If you encountered any problems when voting in person in Tampa Bay, please tell us about it using the form below. We may contact you with more questions so that we may look into the problem. (If you’re voting in South Florida, you can report problems there, too.)
