Fake ads tell people they can vote by texting

No states allow voting via texting. The only way to vote is by absentee ballot or showing up in person at your local polling precinct.

Twitter is starting to suspend the accounts that share the ad. Officials haven’t said exactly who is posting the ads. There is also one floating around that is in Spanish, trying to target Hispanic voters.
