Facebook bans ads that call voting fraud widespread or election invalid

Facebook has said it would not allow advertisements on its platforms that suggest voting fraud or invalid results in relation to the coming US elections.

The company announced the new rules in a blog post, adding to earlier restrictions on premature claims of election victory.

On Tuesday, Trump used the first televised debate with Democratic challenger Biden to amplify his baseless claims that the November 3 presidential election will be “rigged.”

Facebook said the new election ad prohibition would include those that “portray voting or census participation as useless/meaningless” or that “delegitimize any lawful method or process of voting or voting tabulation … as illegal, inherently fraudulent or corrupt.”
