Want to send MauiTime a juicy tip? Important and sensitive stories often start with tips from the public. We’re always looking for stories about how government agencies, elected officials and law enforcement shape the way we live.
But evidence is key: firsthand experience or revealing documents are far more useful than hunches. If you’ve encountered something that the public needs to know about, then we want to hear from you.
HOW TO TIP MAUITIME
Email is the easiest way to reach us. Send tips to the general Mauitime email here: [email protected]
Email addresses for specific reporters and editors are linked on this staff list.
If you are at risk of reprisals, do not use your work email, Wi-Fi or device.
You can also send tips using the app Signal, which encrypts text messages and calls. Signal stores your number and the last time you accessed the app, but not whom you communicate with. Be sure not to use your work phone. You can download Signal here.
You can tip Mauitime via Signal here: +1-808-283-0512
Depending on what version of Signal you’re using, you may need to add MAUITIME’s number as a contact before beginning a conversation. The contact can be deleted once the conversation has begun.
Postal mail is also a secure way of sending tips and documents. For anonymity, use a public mailbox and don’t include a return address.

SecureDrop is the most secure way to send documents to Mauitime, although it requires some additional work. Mauitime currently does not support SecureDrop due to limited resources.
