Colorado’s 3 million-plus mail-in ballots are en route to most voters as Election Day approaches.

But with renewed scrutiny around voting rights and security, keeping an eye on the process is part of any good journalistic endeavor.

The Sun is part of ProPublica’s Electionland project, a collaboration of newsrooms around the country tracking voting problems on Election Day (and beyond).

Here’s how you can participate:

SMS: Send the word VOTE, VOTA (for Spanish) or 投票 (for Chinese) to 81380 (standard text message rates apply).

WhatsApp: Send the word VOTE, VOTA (for Spanish) or 投票 (for Chinese) to 1-850-909-8683.

Facebook Messenger: Go to m.me/electionland.

On Election Day (or during early voting), we’ll check in with you to find out how long it took you to vote and whether you had or saw any problems.

If you see any issues with voter registration, missing data, or other issues, you can also tag Electionland on Twitter @Electionland.
