Voice of OC is working with the nation’s largest nonprofit investigative news organization, ProPublica on their Electionland project, which gathers voting issue tips and sends them for investigation to local journalists.

Electionland is an ambitious nationwide project to gather, investigate and report out if issues arise at polls or with the voting process. Voice of OC’s participation in the project is just the latest Election work done by the newsroom to further civic information ahead of the November election, including a comprehensive voter guide, candidate debate moderation, news stories, community opinion pieces.
