Facebook and Twitter have twice put a warning label on Trump’s voting posts



Facebook and Twitter have twice put a warning label on Trump's voting posts

Trump said North Carolina voters should “make sure your ballot COUNTS” by visiting polling stations to “see if it was COUNTED. IF NO, VOTE! “

North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein tweeted in response to the president, telling the people of North Carolina, “DO NOT do what the president tells you.” He added that voting twice is a criminal offense and voters should not “unnecessarily risk contact with large numbers of people” during the coronavirus pandemic.
Voters in North Carolina do not need to go to the polls to check if their ballot is counted. Patrick Gannon, a public information officer for the North Carolina State Board of Elections, told CNN reporters Maygan Vasquez and Nikki Carvajal in early September that there is three different paths so that people can check the status of their ballots.
They can use a tool called BallotTrax; they can check the voter search tool on the bulletin board website, which will show when the voter’s ballot was accepted; or they can contact the district election council.
Government officials sought to fix Trump has repeatedly sounded a misleading statement… Last week in North Carolina State election commission reported absentee ballots are counted after Election Day, and voters who have already mailed a ballot paper will not be able to vote in person on a regular ballot.

Those who “insist” on voting in person will be given a preliminary ballot, which may not count if voters have already mailed the ballot, officials said.

Twitter label said Trump’s posts contradicted the platform’s rules regarding civic and electoral integrity. Facebook said mail-order voting “has a long history of reliability.”

None of the labels informed users about the potential illegality of trying to vote twice. But in a separate statement to CNN, Twitter acknowledged that voting more than once in the same elections is a felony, citing state guidelines released last week.

“According to the North Carolina Board of Elections, voting twice in the state is illegal,” a Twitter spokesman said in a statement. “To protect people on Twitter, we are wrong to restrict the distribution of tweets that advise people to take actions that might be illegal in the context of voting or lead to their votes canceled.”

Facebook and Twitter have tried to convince the public of their readiness for the elections with a new policy aimed at political speech. Facebook said it would restrict political ads a week before Election Day, and Twitter this week introduced new rules on electoral disinformation that could lead to increased protection against Trump’s tweets.

But Saturday’s incident suggests the platforms will continue to allow Trump to mislead the public about how mail-order voting works.

Trump has repeatedly stated in recent weeks, unlike state election officials, that voting ballots sent by mail cannot be counted. Previously, Facebook removed a video in which Trump urges Americans to vote twice. But neither Facebook nor Twitter removed Trump’s latest post.

When asked to explain why Trump’s latest post was upheld, Facebook spokesman Andy Stone quoted North Carolina’s recommendation and its explanation of various safeguards against double voting.

A Twitter tag on Trump’s tweet said it “may be in the public interest for the tweet to remain accessible.”

CNN’s Sam Fossum contributed to this report.
