Whistleblower Form

Over the last year, the rush to expand mail-in voting and other last minute election administration changes have increased the risk for voter disenfranchisement and fraud. Additionally, Congress has increased the federal funding for grants under the Help America Vote Act (HAVA). This page was created to help the Committee on House Administration provide oversight of federal elections and related funding. Whistleblowers play a vital role in conducting this constitutionally mandated oversight responsibility.

To report election administration waste, fraud, or abuse, please fill out the form below. Alternatively, email the committee at ReportElectionIssues@mail.house.gov or by telephone at (202) 225-8281. 

Art. 1, §5, clause 1 of the Constitution gives the House of Representatives the power to “be the Judge of the Elections, Returns, and Qualifications of its own Members.” Under House Rule X, cl(1)(k), subparagraphs (5), (12), and (15), the House Administration Committee hears contested House elections cases “based on the papers, depositions, and exhibits filed with the Clerk. Such papers, depositions, and exhibits shall constitute the record of the case.” (2 U.S.C. § 392). Your whistleblower disclosure could contribute to this record in the event such a challenge arises.

We advise that whistleblowers use your personal resources and contact information when communicating with the Committee, and that you do not use your work equipment or work contact information. Further, do not submit classified information or other information barred from release through this form or by email.

Various U.S. laws at the federal, state and local level prohibit retaliation against whistleblowers for providing information to Congress. However, you still take serious risks when you report allegations of wrongdoing. We recommend that you consult an attorney experienced in whistleblower law for further guidance.

We respect your confidentiality, and we will use your contact information only to follow up with you regarding your submission. You may submit a disclosure anonymously. However, please be aware that anonymous disclosures may limit our ability to respond to the information that you provide.
