With such an important election coming up, we can’t afford to let misinformation impact how we vote -- so we’ve drawn a roadmap to help social media giants navigate this election season, from early voting through the official certification of results.

Sign on to demand social media giants -- including Facebook and Twitter -- adopt these practices.

- Eliminate fact-checking exemptions for politicians, especially concerning voting

September 14th:
- Add authoritative information to all voting-related posts, in addition to fact-checking labels for misleading or false information about voting
- Start alerting users retroactively if they’ve been exposed to false info about voting or results and correct the record

October 1st:
- Share information about likely timeline for election results
- Let election directors and appropriate NGOs promote credible information and flag misleading content
- Promote legitimate voter hotlines and their partner organizations

October 20th:
- Apply the highest transparency standards to all ads, not just political ones
- Place a freeze on new advertisers until post-election

November 3rd (after polls close):
-Pre-screen posts from high-reach accounts and block those that would incite violence before they publish

January 20th:
- Arrive peacefully at Inauguration Day, with full confidence in the integrity of our election and its results

Add your name now to demand social media giants adopt these practices.
