FBI Investigates Robocalls Trying To Suppress, Intimidate Voters

Description

The FBI is investigating a series of suspicious robocalls and texts urging voters to 'stay home and stay safe' during the election. A senior cybersecurity official said Tuesday that such calls 'happen every election,' and are a tactic to intimidate and suppress voters. According to Business Insider, approximately 10 million such robocalls have gone out to voters across the US in recent months. Officials in Michigan said that some voters in Flint also received calls telling them to go to the polls on Wednesday to avoid long lines on Tuesday. In Kansas and Nebraska, similar calls were reported. Officials urged voters in both states to ignore the false claims and head to the polls.
