November 3rd is the last day to vote. Robocalls that say otherwise are attempts to suppress the vote.

The Facts

Robocalls spreading false election information have been reported in multiple states. Election officials are the best sources for polling place information, state and local regulations, and ongoing events. Robocalls are not a common communication channel for election officials, and are more often used by third parties. If you receive a suspicious call, it’s best to verify the information directly with your officials. You can use the Voting Information Tool on our homepage to find their contact information. 

Voters who intend to cast a ballot should verify their voting location and hours directly with their state or local election officials before heading to the polls. 

We are tracking reports of anonymous and false information spread by robocall regarding the date of the election and the safety of polling place voting. Currently, there are reports of anonymous and false robocalls targeting voters in  Michigan, Nebraska, and North Carolina.
