Elections & Politics

Understanding Nextdoor’s election policies

Nextdoor's elections policy is a subset of the Do not engage in harmful activity community guideline.

Please read the official policy in Nextdoor's Help Center to ensure you have the most up to date information, and watch the below video for more context. We recommend watching the video from 03:06-19:24 to learn more about our policy.

Neighbor engagement resources

The following toolkits contain valuable resources for engaging with neighbors in election-related conversations, including example posts & templates you can use when messaging your neighbors.

  1. Toolkit: Elections & Politics
  2. Toolkit: Facilitating Hard Conversations
  3. Toolkit: How to moderate when a crisis hits your neighborhood

The recording below offers additional best practices for engaging with neighbors, and answers live audience questions. We recommend continuing the video at 19:25.

Fact checking resources

It is not required for neighborhood leads and reviewers to fact-check political content that appears in their neighborhood. Should you choose to do so, here are our recommended fact-checking resources:

  1. Learn the time and place of an election, along with the legal methods of delivering ballots, such as main-in, in-person, requirements for documentation or photo ID
  2. Understand Voter ID laws by state, and other dates and deadlines, bios and voting records of elected and non-elected government officials
  3. Non-partisan, non-profit, consumer advocacy project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania that monitors the statements made by candidates in major elections to determine accuracy and factuality
  4. AP Fact Check: Fact-checking, accountability journalism and misinformation coverage from Associated Press journalists around the globe
  5. Secretary of State websites: Identify your state’s Secretary of State’s website, read general election information, track candidates and by-the-hour election results on election night.

Getting help from Nextdoor

We're here to help. Here's how to get additional support from Nextdoor if you need it:

  1. Report a neighbor for review from the neighbor's profile page. The neighbor will not know that you reported them. Instructions: How to report a neighbor.
  2. Submit a ticket through Help Center. Click the "Contact Us" button from the bottom of any article to get started.

Nextdoor Support typically reviews all requests within 24 hours. Please do not submit multiple reports or tickets for the same issue, as that will delay our ability to respond in a timely fashion. Per company policy, Nextdoor Support will not be able to disclose the details of any action taken against another neighbor/ moderator's account.
