FLINT, Mich. — Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Attorney General Dana Nessel revealed Tuesday that an unknown party is purposefully spreading voter misinformation in Flint via robocalls.
The calls are reportedly going out to Flint residents and telling them that due to long lines, they should vote tomorrow – Wednesday, Nov. 4. Both Benson and Nessel said these claims are false and that they are meant to confuse voters.
“Lines in the area and across the state are minimal and moving quickly, and Michigan voters can feel confident that leaders across state and local government are vigilant against these kinds of attacks on their voting rights and attempts at voter suppression, and we will be working quickly all day to stamp out any misinformation aimed at preventing people from exercising their right to vote,” Benson said.
Tuesday is the last day to vote in the 2020 general election. Anyone who plans to vote in person must be in line at their polling place by 8 p.m. Tuesday. No votes will be taken Wednesday.
