Facebook blocks ads that seek to delegitimize election

Facebook, Inc. will block all ads that aim to delegitimize elections on its platforms Facebook and Instagram, including those related to the upcoming 2020 United States election, the company announced on Wednesday.

"Last week we said we’d prohibit ads that make premature declarations of victory. We also won’t allow ads with content that seeks to delegitimize the outcome of an election," Facebook's Director of Product Management Rob Leathern tweeted.

The California-based tech giant looks to block ads that advise people not to vote or participate in a census, as well as ads that label "any lawful method or process of voting" as "illegal, inherently fraudulent or corrupt."
