You can text concerns about voter fraud to the Tennessee Secretary of State's Division of Elections

The Text to Report Voter Fraud system was new in the state for the primaries, and is available for the November election.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Tennessee Secretary of State said a new program that began for the May primaries remains available for voters to report election fraud on Election Day.

With the Text to Report Voter Fraud system, voters can text ‘TN’ to 45995 and they’ll receive a secure link to submit complaints and concerns directly to the Secretary of State’s Division of Elections. That’s the agency which reviews reports of possible voter fraud, misinformation, intimidation, or other election day concerns.

Voters can also report issues or get answers to questions by calling the Division of Elections Official Election Day Hotline toll-free at 1-877-850-4959.

“In Tennessee, our Division of Elections and your local county election commission are the sources voters can trust for accurate, up-to-date election information," said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “If you have questions or concerns about your voting experience during early voting or on Election Day, please reach out to my office or your local election commission.”

Tennesseans can find information for local county election commissions at tnsos.org/elections/election_commissions.php.

"Helping Tennesseans cast their ballot and protecting the integrity of our elections are our highest priorities," said Coordinator of Elections Mark Goins. "When you contact our office or your election commission, you can be confident that you are getting correct information or that your concerns are getting to the right place."

Tennessee voters can also find polling location and voter-specific information, including sample ballots and election results, with the GoVoteTN app in the App Store or Google Play, or at GoVoteTN.gov.
