The Idaho Secretary of State's office launched a new website today which gives Idahoans a way to report election-based misinformation.

The site encourages voters to be aware of misinformation, and report anything on social media that appears to be inaccurate or misleading.

Examples of potential misinformation include:

  • Election dates
  • Mail-in ballot rules
  • Ballot information
  • Polling place hours
  • Election night reporting
  • Voting technology
  • Poll watchers

Intelligence officials are unanimous in warnings of the spread of misinformation ahead of the General Election. The new web service was created to give Idahoans a single, nonpartisan location to report this misinformation which could harm the integrity of the state's elections.
