How To Use This Site

We can’t let online disinformation harm our democracy. If you see something, say something.

Send in any election disinformation you’ve seen. Here’s how to make an effective report:

  1. Start by describing the problem: what makes it harmful? What is false, misleading, or inaccurate? What other context is necessary? Then, if you can, give us a link to the problematic content you found, on social media or a website.
  2. Document the problem -- in case it gets hidden or removed. If it’s online, you can find instructions to take a screenshot here. And if it’s in the physical world, or somewhere you can’t link to, take a photo and upload it.
  3. Let us know if it targets a specific geographic community, like a particular neighborhood, city, or state -- and give us your contact information in case we have questions. (We will only contact you about your report, and won’t add you to any lists.)

Dos and Don'ts

DO be a discerning and careful consumer of information online! Trust your instincts -- if a profile looks fake or unreliable, then double check whatever they’re saying against a trusted source.

DO share accurate information from trusted sources (like your state’s Secretary of State office) about how to vote. Useful websites include:

DO include a screenshot with your post if possible (instructions here) -- or if it’s something in the physical world, take a photo and upload it.

DO NOT reply to, share, or retweet democracy-related disinformation. The more people comment on a post or share it, the more users will see it -- so even if you are trying to debunk a piece of disinformation, by responding you’re only exposing more voters to the disinformation. WHENEVER YOU SEE ELECTION DISINFORMATION ONLINE, REPORT IT HERE, AND MOVE ON!

DO NOT submit disinformation about specific candidates to this website -- we are a nonpartisan effort to stop disinformation about voting, elections, and our democracy that could prevent people from voting or undermine public trust in our democracy. We don’t fact check claims about specific candidates.

DO NOT feed the trolls by engaging with them in any way -- remember that their whole goal is to confuse, frustrate, and suppress voters -- and getting into a lengthy, public back-and-forth doesn’t help anyone. So whenever you see election disinformation online, report it here, and move on!
