Times staff and readers' requests will initiate investigations.
Readers can email their suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to: Attention: Elections Investigations, The Times, 2080 N. Main St., Crown Point, IN 46307. Only written requests will be accepted. Senders' names will remain anonymous.
