Thanks for visiting the Illinois Election Incidents Hotsheet! They say there are two things you don't want to see being made: Sausage, and legislation. Add a third: "elections." Problems abound before, during, and after elections: Equipment failures, human error, mishaps. Not to mention malfeasance. Most fly under the radar. What does get aired is often filtered, pruned, condensed, and slanted to suit the publisher, whether newspaper, broadcaster, or government office. What citizens really need are outlets where they can publish their own personal eye-witness reports—complete and intact, without filtering, editing, or watering down. Outlets that empower citizens to pin down, engage, and ultimately root out the deficiencies that corrupt our elections. Outlets like the Illinois Elections Incidents Hotsheet. Our site is designed to help you easily— Find a hotline for immediate help. Post a report here—and see it published instantly, word for word. Upload audio or video files. Read up-to-the-minute citizen reports. (Click here then scroll down.) View reports from previous elections. (See list at above right.) Questions or suggestions? You can post a note here or email us at email@example.com. Thanks for visiting. And please check back for updates! Roy Lipscomb Hotsheet moderator P. S.
