Trump's persistent and blatant attack on our democratic voting process is more than un-American, it could be seen as sedition

His appointment of the Post Master General there only to sabotage mail-in voting, which he has vigorously done. Then there is his numerous lies and distortions about mail-in voting for months, undermining the process. Voting is fundamental to our government and our way of life, and the president wants to make it seem the process is unreliable.

Facebook pulled 48 Trump election campaign ads which told people 'your vote has not been counted'. The ads consisted of video clips with accompanying text saying: "Your vote has not been counted. This is the fight for our future. President Trump needs you to take action, and vote. We need you to vote early."

Another version has the same text, but with the sentences in a different order. All include the phrase "your vote has not been counted."

Some of the videos were footage of President Donald Trump praising Amy Coney Barrett, Trump's Supreme Court nominee, while others urged people to vote early.

Facebook removed 48 ads from the Trump campaign for violating their voter interference policy, a spokesperson told Business Insider.

They included the phrase "Your vote has not been counted."

The ads were aimed at people who had not yet voted, but would likely have also been seen by people who had voted. Some 399,000 people saw them.

President Donald Trump has argued, without evidence, that the US election is rigged, and stoked paranoia among his voters about their ballots being ignored.

Facebook said the ads violated its voter interference policies, but declined to explain precisely how.

Business Insider contacted the Trump campaign for comment, but did not immediately receive a reply.

It's unclear exactly what in the ads led to them being pulled. Facebook did not respond to a query about the specific reasoning behind the decision, beyond referring to a blog post about its voter interference policy.

The policy was is designed to protect "the integrity of the election by fighting foreign interference, misinformation and voter suppression."

Although Election Day is still to come on November 3, the statement "your vote has not been counted" had the potential to be misleading for a number of American voters when the ads ran, starting October 9.

States vary as to when they allow ballots to be processed and counted, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

At least six states allow counting to begin prior to Election Day. In Florida, counting can begin up to 22 days before — at which point the Trump campaign ads would still have been live.

Carol, come on , Carol.
Mail in Ballots have been used here for years, they’re not new. And yes they are legal.
It isn’t the Dems in the news everyday for acts of voter suppression in Republican controlled states.
It’s the red states that keep getting caught trying to stifle voter turnout, either by putting out one Ballot Dropbox for 2.5 Million people in Houston. Purging polls in the red states, and every unheard of way they can cheat , they have and still are.
But, damn if you’re not right there to blame it all on the Dems.
You know if you all are going to work together to cheat in this election, if you win by cheating again you will be called an illegitimate party in office again.
Doesn’t that just suck your American Pride right out of you ?
To know beforehand that you won by cheating ?
That is not even close to what your country stands for and you really should know better.
If you think you’re on the losing side because the Dems cheat, think again.
You’re on the losing side because you are a minority. The rich and powerful you choose to defend are a minority. Thing is, they don’t care about you. After you help them win, you’re going in the wood chipper.

It's the GOP, they have been at war with voting for decades, it's just ramping up to a blatancy that can't be hidden anymore. It's part of winning the electoral college when they are losing the popular vote.

Never before in our history have we used mail-in balloting. Absentee ballots, yes, but these are not the same as bulk mailings based on voter registration records that states are notoriously lax in keeping current.

From top to bottom, this mail-in debacle is ripe for cheating, fraud, and corruption.

It is quite obvious you don't even know what country you live in, and the country you think you live in, you despise.

Educate yourself more fully on voting. Your comments are ignorant.
